About Ireland’s BioBlitz
BioBlitz is a scientific race against time. The aim of this fun event is to find as many species as possible within a park over a 24 hour period. This is a unique event where scientists, students and the general public can come together and learn how scientists and recorders use their skills to study the wildlife of an area. It will also introduce the non-specialist to the fabulous wealth of biodiversity that occurs all around us.
