Join our Bioblitz! Celebrating Biodiversity Day

Our local wildlife has been more important than ever for many of us over the last year. That’s why we’re celebrating Biodiversity Day with a Go Wild in Garnock Bioblitz – and we need your help!

Join us on the 22nd and 23rd May in recording our wildlife and see your records added to the weekend’s total. Check out our live updates as the weekend progresses and help us achieve our goal of 250 individual records – every record counts.

Check back in the run up to the event for regular updates, guest blogs from our wonderful partners and links to loads of free ID resources to help you out on the big day. 

Exciting Update: You can now borrow wildlife recording equipment from our collection to use for the Bioblitz! Click here to find out more. 

 

Biodiversity Day was launched by the Convention on Biological Diversity to raise awareness and action for the conservation of global biodioversity.
