Relive the BioBlitz!

The Biscayne BioBlitz was an outstanding opportunity to:
  • count, map and learn about the park's diverse organisms, ranging from microscopic bacteria to sea turtles weighing hundreds of pounds
  • unite scientists and the public in the field
  • add to the park's official species list
  • highlight the importance of protecting the biodiversity of this extraordinary place
If you made it to the Biscayne BioBlitz, thanks for helping make the event a huge success! And, if you weren't able to attend, learn about the fun and discoveries that occurred through the photo galleries, BioBlitz blog, and updates sent out through Twitter. There are also preliminary lists of the plant and animal species identified by BioBlitz participants.
