City Nature Challenge 2022

5th April 2022

City Nature Challenge UK is back from 29 April - 2 May, and we want you to help us record the wildlife you find in your local area.

Join residents in 400+ cities across the world in an epic, global mission to record as many nature sightings as possible over four days. Help put wildlife on the map in the UK and your region this spring!

The challenge is a chance for anyone and everyone to contribute to a worldwide study of trees, plants and wildlife, helping to shape conservation efforts, support scientific research developments and inform plans for tackling the ecological emergency.

The Natural History Consortium and Wessex Water are working together to encourage as many people in the Bristol and Bath area to take part and record the nature on their doorstep.

There will be challenge hubs popping up in green spaces across Bristol and Bath to help residents learn how to use iNaturalist and join engaging guided nature walks to practice new wildlife recording skills.

You don’t have to be an expert or even know the name of the species you’ve seen. Just download the free iNaturalist app, take a picture of the nature you find, upload – and share.

Once on the app, join the City Nature Challenge 2022 United Kingdom Project and your regional project page to see live updates on how your local area and the rest of the UK are doing.

City Nature Challenge International is organised by the California Academy of Sciences and Natural History Museum Los Angeles County.
