Bio Blitz underway this weekend

By Rosalind Russell – Canadians from coast to coast to coast are invited to submit observations of wildlife around them this weekend.

The Nature Conservancy of Canada is hosting its fourth annual Big Backyard Bio Blitz until August seventh to support research and conservation efforts.

Anyone with a device that can take and submit photos can participate, regardless of their expertise or where they are.

Anyone who wants to take part in the community science event can register at backyard blitz dot c-a, where they will get detailed instructions on making and submitting observations.

The event helps scientists take stock of local biodiversity, track rare species and fight invasive ones.
