  • What tools will you use to do your bioblitz?
  • How will you record what you have found?
  • Where can you learn more about getting involved with a local bioblitz?


  • Bioblitzes are a great example of a citizen science project. Citizen science projects rely on non-experts in a field to help collect data about a certain topic, like animals present in an area or water flow.
  • Run your own mini bioblitz by surveying an area around you, or get involved with a local bioblitz!


  • What was the coolest thing you discovered during your survey?
  • How do you think bioblitzes impact our world?
  • How can you teach others about the biodiversity around them?
  • Remember to submit your activities on our Scouts for Sustainability Take Action Map
