Join our special NBN Conference iSpotnature autumn bioblitz - NBNconf20

Join our special NBN Conference iSpotnature autumn bioblitz - NBNconf20 - UK and Ireland :

Help us countdown to the National Biodiversity Network (NBN) 2020 Conference on November 18: join a mini bioblitz with iSpot to capture a map of autumn’s wildlifeI 

These are challenging times but being around nature helps us cope and is good for our wellbeing. So let's do this collectively, sharing observations of what we can see around us.

From now until November 16 join us in taking a little time away from computer screens to get involved in this interactive activity, capturing and sharing snapshots from nature from wherever you are. Please do take care and follow the latest Covid-19 guidelines.

The NBN Conference is online this year and being held in collaboration with iSpot - your place to share nature, the Open University's citizen science platform for biodiversity.

Post all the observations you can find by adding the ‘descriptive tag' NBNconf20, which will help the iSpot Team collate and showcase a map of all the records posted. If the weather or other restrictions prevent you from getting outdoors, do still get involved by helping with identifications of other observations or adding comments. Have a look at the postings so far in the NBNconf20 bioblitz project

Join in and attend the NBN Conference themed NBN at 20 – Changing Times to find out the results!  Who will record the most species, or the most unusual? It would be great to see observations from your area.  

For those new to iSpot here are some tips and guidelines on using the websitereturning users thanks for your ongoing support! 

If you are unable to attend the Conference but would still like to participate in this autumn Bioblitz, add the NBNconf20 tag to your observations.
