What is a BioBlitz?
A BioBlitz is a large scale event which encourages guests to get involved in the local wildlife and natural areas surrounding them. It connects scientists and members of the public with nature. Guests will be able to identify and record as many wild species as possible over one day.
Get involved! To get you started we will be hosting a Zoo BioBlitz!
