Announcing the First Annual Blogger Bioblitz
Throughout National Wildlife Week (April 21 – 29), which intersects Earth Day, about 30 bloggers (signed up in a mere three days since the announcement) will be spending the week conducting bioblitzes across the world – the US, Panama, Canada, etc. – compiling the information gained into tallies and grand totals of species, then georeferencing the whole bit on an interactive world map, showing our results spatially.
The event has evolved quite a bit in the few days. The main discussion takes place at the Google Group; anyone can join as a participant or just a spectator. For a full explanation of the event, please see the original announcement .
It’s not meant to be a contest, nor is meant to be a hard source of taxonomic data. It is meant to be a fun little excursion to highlight little pockets of biodiversity across the world.
Please join us in supporting the event! You can contact Jeremy Bruno
directly at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
