CITY NATURE CHALLENGE
April 26 to April 29, 2024
The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is an international effort for people to find and document plants, animals and fungi in cities across the globe. It’s a Bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a friendly contest with each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people. Species occurrence data collected through the City Nature Challenge helps scientists and planners to keep track of rare species and their habitat, so they can be better protected in the future.
London first participated in the City Nature Challenge in 2023, thanks to support from the following partners:
Funding for the City Nature Challenge was provided by Fanshawe College and Nature London.
