EuroBioBlitz 2023 - Results are in!

Thank you for uploading your records, and helping to identify many, MANY species across Europe.


We are pleased to announce that across Europe, during the 48 hours of EuroBioBlitz, 64,397 records of wildlife were made. These records were of 8374 species and were recorded by 8720 iNaturalist users!

 

To date, 32,637 of these records have been identified to “research grade” level – meaning that these records are of huge value to scientists and researchers, who can use these records to help us get a better understanding of our natural world. Thank you to all who took part by recording wildlife, organising an event, or helping to identify wildlife on iNaturalist – you all have played a huge part in making this happen!


You can explore the map of all of the records made here.


We’ve had a great time seeing all your incredible records, but we’d also love to be able to see some photos of YOU taking part in EuroBioBlitz! Did you run an event, or take part with friends? If you have some favourite photos and are happy for us to share them, please send them to us via email to BioBlitz@bnhc.org.uk. We’d love to see them and even share them on our social media channels to encourage others to get outside and record their local wildlife too.

 

And finally – if you haven’t already filled out the feedback survey for your chance to win a prize, you can do so here until the 30th of October 2023. Survey respondents are in for a random chance to win 1 of 5 vouchers to spend at www.nhbs.com (supplier of the largest range of wildlife, ecology and conservation books and equipment in the world!).

 

We hope you had a great time taking part in EuroBioBlitz 2023, and we hope you join us again next year! You can sign up to take part in EuroBioBlitz 2024, and we will be in touch next year!

 

Thanks and best wishes,

The EuroBioBlitz 2023 Team at the Natural History Consortium
