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!

One thought on “Greater Adelaide

  1. I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter
    a blog that’s both equally educative and
    amusing, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
    The problem is an issue that too few people are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this during my search for something concerning this.
