Run a Bioblitz with iNaturalist NZ

Run a Bioblitz with iNaturalist NZ

Running a Bioblitz is a great way to explore your local environment and get a baseline for the plants and animals in your school or kura and surrounding neighbourhood. If it becomes a regular event, ākonga will be able to track any changes and take action to improve biodiversity in your area.
