What is the ICA Biodiversity Challenge (ICA BioBlitz 2023)
The aim of a “BioBlitz” is to record as many living species (animals, plants, fungi) as possible within a designated area and timeframe. The ICA Biodiversity Challenge is one of these “BioBlitz” initiatives designed to count the number of species found on campus. Everyone is invited to join and add species into the Obsidentif, iObs or Obsmapp apps; beginning May 22, all observations made on University ground will automatically count for the challenge. The number of species registered in the apps can be tracked in real-time. In addition, it is also possible to keep track of the progress of other participating institutions.
