What is a bioblitz?
A bioblitz is an event where scientists, naturalists and members of the public work together to find as many species as possible within a set location and over a defined time period – usually 24 hours.
Interested in running your own bioblitz?
OPAL and the Marine Biological Association (MBA) have produced a free bioblitz guide packed full of useful tips and guidance.
We've also compiled advice on recording, sharing data, and working with the media.
Take part in organised bioblitzes around the UK and see how many species you can find in your local area.
