Wales Garden BioBlitz 2021

 

On Saturday 29th May 2021, the four Welsh LERCs teamed together to organise the second Wales Garden BioBlitz, part of Wales Nature Week. Many thanks to everyone who helped with our national nature hunt!

The day resulted in 2687 records of 968 species being submitted (thus far). You can view the full national species list here.
