Biodiversity Villages & Towns Midsummer BioBlitz

June 21 - June 22

Free

Every Action Counts – Tayside’s Local Patch Project

Our Perth and Kinross Biodiversity Village, Town & Neighbourhood communities can add their own wildlife records all year round using their own individual page (check out the details in the link below). First though, it is very easy to sign up as an iNaturalist observer to add your sightings – https://uk.inaturalist.org/signup.

For the Festival’s Midsummer BioBlitz, you can discover the wildlife in your own community over the next two days and add your observations online via the iNaturalist App. No wildlife knowledge is expected so just follow the advice on the App!

Knowing what wildlife is using “our patch” we can look after it far better. You can concentrate just on your own garden, local park, churchyard or allotment, involve the school or nearby businesses, or ask if residents in the local care home can enjoy some wildlife-spotting in their grounds.

Please record and share observations of your local pollinators, birds, animals, trees or wild plants – whatever you see. Beyond these two midsummer “bioblitz” days, you can still record all the species you see in the months to come.

Find out more by going to the dedicated Biodiversity Villages & Towns iNaturalist page –
