Posts Tagged ‘BioBlitz 2013’

Yes, that’s right! By the end of this year’s epic 30 hour BioBlitz at Kings Weston House we had identified and recorded a huge 463 species, beating our target of 454. That number is due to rise in the coming days as the more obscure species that the team recorded are correctly identified. A massive thanks goes to everyone who took part in the count and participated in the learning activities. We hope to see you at next year’s event!

But our work doesn’t stop here. The Bristol BioBlitz is just the first event of Bristol99 – our exciting new project to reconnect people with the nature of their doorstep. You can look forward to 6 weeks of fun events, from mini-BioBlitzs to bughunting, wildlife walks to fossil-finding, all culminating in the 10th Festival of Nature on Saturday 15 and Sunday 16 June in Bristol’s Harbourside. See you there!
