It is time to take Canada’s na­ture selfie. Join one of the many bioblitzes planned across Canada to mark our 150th birth­day, and help us se­cure the fu­ture of our wildlife while you learn more about and cel­e­brate our nat­u­ral her­itage of bio­di­ver­sity.

There’s lots you can do. Check out the list­ing here and online of planned events across Canada, from five flag­ship events across the coun­try to dozens of com­mu­nity events in every prov­ince and ter­ri­tory. Visit bioblitz­canada.ca for the most up-to-date list.

The web­site also of­fers the plan­ning tools and na­ture re­sources you need to cre­ate your own group or com­mu­nity bioblitz. You can make this your per­sonal sesqui project with friends and fam­ily, us­ing the inat­u­ral­ist app for on-the-spot, real-time species “cap­tures.”
