Wildlife ‘bioblitz’ day at Hyde Park

Nature lovers wanted!

29 April 2018

The Royal Parks charity is hosting a ‘bioblitz’ – a one day nature survey – in Hyde Park to find out how many different species are living in the park so our experts can help better protect them. The event, hosted at Hyde Park’s LookOut Discovery Centre in partnership with the Natural History Museum, invites Londoners and visitors to get involved by helping to showcase the nature in our parks. Nature lovers are encouraged to download the iNaturalist app* to photograph and record any wildlife they see in the park. A team of dedicated scientists, naturalists and volunteers will be on hand to help people identify the insects, plants, birds and other species that they find – and to log these details to build up a picture of the biodiversity in Hyde Park.

The bioblitz day is part of a series of activities being held in the capital to record wildlife in the city as part of the City Nature Challenge, a global contest which sees London compete with more than 60 cities worldwide to find and record wildlife.

The Hyde Park bioblitz will happen on 29 April starting at 10:30am and is suitable for people of all ages and families.
