What is a BioBlitz?
A BioBlitz is an event that focuses on identifying as many species as possible in a short period of time in a specific area. At a BioBlitz, scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to get a snapshot of an area's biodiversity. Apps such as iNaturalist can be used to collect photographs and biological information about living organisms as part of a BioBlitz. High quality data uploaded to iNaturalist become part of an open-source database used by students, scientists, and policy makers.
