A BioBlitz is an event in which members of the public and scientists meet in a delimited area and defined time period to record as many species as possible. By working together in an informal environment, while sharing expertise and collecting valuable scientific data, it is possible to bridge the gap between scientists and citizens. As such, BioBlitzes can be effective strategies to promote citizen science to the public and beyond.
This Task & Finish group aims to connect people, communities, and organisations involved and interested in the organisation of BioBlitz events, to facilitate the sharing of good practice and to build capacity for this type of event across Europe.
The Task & Finish Group has been established under the Sharing Best Practice and Building Capacity Working Group.
