We are excited to know that the 7th Shanghai BioBlitz was held in Oct, 2015. It attracted 180 students with the help of 20 experts. It might be fun to organize a BioBlitz competition among Hong Kong, Shanghai and even more places in China like Beijing, Sichuan or Yunan to see who might find the highest number of species!

“2015 BioBlitz for Shanghai Teenagers” attracted 180  teachers, students and parent representatives from primary and secondary schools of 9 districts and counties around Shanghai.

Guided by 20 experts of plants, birds, insects and aquatic life, participants were divided into four groups respectively in the four aspects to seek and identify biodiversity in the quasi-wetland. This wetland located along the Ecological Corridor of New Jiangwan Town, right to the opposite of Fu Dan Science Park Primary School.
