Previous BioBlitzes

Over the last ten years, scientists and volunteers have catalogued thousands of species in BioBlitzes across the globe.

What's it like to be in the middle of a Blitz? As a Smithsonian magazine writer put it: "A BioBlitz is an event in which dozens of scientists fan out across some unlikely habitat, hell-bent on recording every species they can find, dead or alive, in a 24-hour period. ... They [are] prepared to dance like butterflies, sing like chickadees or do almost anything else this scavenger hunt required."
