TAKING CANADA’S NATURE SELFIE
As a key part of Canada 150 celebrations, 10,000 Canadians helped biodiversity take the national spotlight
in 2017 through the Bioblitz Canada 150 project, one of 38 Canada 150 signature projects funded by the Government of Canada. Canada’s Nature Selfie grew to include about 40,000 observations of 7,500 wildlife species in inaturalist. Over the
year, observations in the inaturalist database tripled from 113,000 to over 390,000. For more information, visit Bioblitzcanada.ca.
