EuroBioBlitz 2023

Take part in a BioBlitz across the whole of Europe!

A huge wildlife recording event taking place across the whole of Europe each Autumn. A chance for anyone and everyone to contribute to the study of Europe’s wildlife, helping to shape conservation efforts and support scientific research. EuroBioBlitz 2024 news coming soon!

What is a BioBlitz?

‘Bio’ means ‘life’ and ‘Blitz’ means ‘to do something quickly and intensively’. Together they make ‘BioBlitz’, a collaborative race against the clock to discover as many species of plants, animals and fungi as possible, within a set location, over a defined time period.

We can all help with nature’s recovery by helping fill in the gaps in what we know about the species on our doorstep. By recording nature nearby, everyone can support vital conservation research whilst connecting with nature and enjoying the outdoors.
