Spring is back, and it’s the happiest time of the year when everything comes back to life. The City Nature Challenge provides a perfect opportunity for you to connect with nature, explore the outdoors, and discover new species. You don’t need any special skills or equipment to participate – just your smartphone and the iNaturalist app.
To take part in the challenge, all you need to do is find any plant, animal, or any evidence of life in your city, take a picture, and share your observations through the iNaturalist app. It’s that easy! Your participation will help scientists understand more about the biodiversity of your city and how to coexist with nature.
The City Nature Challenge is an international citizen science initiative that highlights the value of citizen science data in answering questions in urban ecology. By participating in the CNC YXE 2023, you’ll be joining a worldwide community of nature lovers and making a significant contribution to scientific research. The data you collect will be used to understand how urban biodiversity responds to urban intensification and how cities can be made more sustainable.
Cities around the world have already hosted a variety of Public Engagement with Biological Recording PEBR events as part of the City Nature Challenge, including BioBlitzes, mini-BioBlitzes, species surveys, guided nature walks, ID parties, and various derivations of these. These events all have the common aims of collecting biodiversity data while connecting the public with nature. By taking part in the CNC YXE 2023, you’ll be contributing to this global effort to understand and protect our natural world.
