Friday 30th April- Monday 3rd May 2022- the Brighton and Eastern Downs region took part in the City Nature Challenge 2022, a global Bioblitz where cities and regions pit it out against one another to try to find as many different species as possible.
It was close all weekend, with the Brighton and Eastern Downs region lagging behind areas such as Birmingham and Bristol for much of proceedings. But, thanks to some mammoth last minute efforts by local naturalists including Graeme Lyons and Gerald Legg, when the final scores were totted up the Brighton and Eastern Downs region came top in the UK, reclaiming the title it earned in 2021!
The event is great fun and produces some top quality citizen science, helping us understand more about the wildlife we share our wonderful landscape with. Anyone can take part. Click here to find out more….
