Snap pics of nature and share in National Big Backyard BioBlitz's Profile



Pictures of a bird or flower in your backyard can help the Nature Conservancy of Canada contain the spread of invasive species and figure out the range of native plants and animals.

They’re encouraging you to take part in the 3rd annual National Big Backyard BioBlitz this long weekend.

Grab your smartphone, tablet or camera, head outside to search for plants, animals and insects, snap a photo and share.

From urban centres to remote campsites and anywhere in between, participate when you can, where you can, on your own or bring the whole family.

Last year, this event contributed nearly 37,000 species observations that were uploaded by people on iNaturalist, an app you can download on your phone.

The NCC will compile critical information on species populations and locations for scientists and conservation planners, who can use this information to plan future protection and restoration efforts across the country.

To register, head to www.backyardbioblitz.ca. Once registered, you will get a step-by-step guide on how to participate, photography tips, information about species identification, and an automatic entry to win a Big Backyard BioBlitz prize pack.
