City Nature Challenge 2022
April 29 - May 2Free
City Nature Challenge is Back!
What about making your walks a little wilder in 2022 by spotting the nature on your doorstep? Join this year´s City Nature Challenge, an epic global mission to record as much wildlife as possible. Share your observations of the nature all around us, using the free iNaturalist app: https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/city-nature-challenge-2022-united-kingdom.
Even if you are outside a city boundary, your wildlife sightings will still count towards the UK total and help put nature on the map. While taking part in the challenge, check the iNaturalist UK Project Leaderboard to see how many observation the UK and your region have made!
No expert knowledge is needed. Simply download the iNaturalist app between 29th of April and 2nd of May- take picture of plants, trees, insects or animals that you observe out in the wild, and upload! Your observations will support efforts to look after nature, parks, and green spaces where you live, and inform plans for tackling the ecological emergency in the UK.
Your uploaded wildlife sightings will add to local and national databases, which help us to understand where wildlife is and how we can look after it. The data gets used by researchers, land managers, conservation groups, and the government regularly, to inform their decisions.
