Grab your smart phone, download the iNaturalist app, and get ready to contribute to the world of science while enjoying one or all of Oregon’s Marine Reserves.
A Bio-Blitz is an intensive, targeted biological survey of a geographic area with the goal of identifying all the species that can be found in that area at one time. It is basically a snapshot of the biodiversity.
When is it? This year again we will be doing our Bio-Blitz with a “hybrid” approach. We will first provide instruction during a Kickoff Webinar on June 22nd at 6pm – 7:30pm and then ask you to explore with your own household group and record your observations with the iNaturalist app anytime that works for you.
Hosted by the PRIMED Network (Primary Responders in Marine Emergent Disease), the Oregon Coast Aquarium, and presenters from each of the five marine reserves, join us for a virtual training on Bio-Blitzes, the iNaturalist app, and how best to participate up and down the coast.
