Greater Adelaide City Nature Challenge 2021
If you are anywhere in Greater Adelaide, snap a photo of your natural observation and upload it to the iNaturalist website making sure to include the location! The observations will automatically be pooled to this project so that we can compare with other cities all over the world!
How is COVID-19 impacting on the City Nature challenge? While there is a great deal of concern relating to current events we have decided to modify rather than withdraw from the event. We will be encouraging a “Backyard Bio-blitz” across Australia as there is a massive amount of under recorded biodiversity just outside our doors! The organizers have also created a usefull a “City Nature Challenge Frequently Asked Questions relating to COVID-19“
Hold an event
If you are involved in a group or are interested in a area, why not set up a bio-blitz over the weekend. Let us know, and we will add it to our list of events.
The Greater Adelaide CNC is organized by Philip Roetman, Stephen Fricker, and the team at the South Australian chapter of the Australian Citizen Science Association.
