Oooh, I'm so excited! We've spent weeks and months working with the Marine Biological Association, Devon Wildlife Trust and the National Trust to organise a big event called a Bioblitz - and finally it's happening this weekend!
A Bioblitz is where lots of scientists, amateur naturalists and the public all get together in one area to survey everything they can find in 24 hours. We've chosen the coast at Wembury in Devon (near Plymouth) for our Bioblitz, and we'll be surveying everything in the sea (with scuba divers!), on the shore and along the cliff tops.
The event runs from midday Friday 21st to midday Saturday 22nd August, and will be open to the public from 12:00 - 19:00 on Friday and 10:00 - 12:00 on Saturday. So if you're in Devon at the end of this week, please come along and take part - it's all free and anyone can get involved. Our Base Camp will be at Wembury Marine Centre (postcode PL9 0HP). Hope to see some of you there. If you can't come along, I'll be posting all the details and photos of the event here next week.
How many species do you think we can find in 24 hours?
