BIAZA BioBlitz is an annual event organised by our Native Species Working Group (NWSG) in conjunction with the Bristol Natural History Consortium (BNHC).
BioBlitz is the latest ‘buzzword’ in native conservation. A BioBlitz is an event that can engage large numbers of people with biodiversity, inviting them to get directly involved in surveying and monitoring. There are a variety of potential different activities; bug safaris, guided walks, pond dipping, small mammal trapping and more!
During a BioBlitz event, scientists and members of the public work together to survey a natural space; seeking, identifying and recording as many species as possible over 24 hours. If you’ve ever wondered what else lives in the zoo amongst the exotic animals and plants come along and help find creatures such as great green bush cricket, wolf spider, elephant hawk-moth and maybe nocturnal visitors like badgers, owls and bats.
