Bye bye Buccoo!

That's it! The end of the 2023 Bioblitz here in southwest Tobago.

When the iNaturalist observations are combined with the other species lists, we end up with a provisional total of 720 species for the weekend! This already impressive total is bound to rise as more people upload their photos and we get more identifications from the iNaturalist community....

Please continue to add your pics from the 24hrs and help ID where you can!

Thank you to First Citizens for sponsoring this year's event and thank you to all of our volunteers for joining is this year.

Special thanks to this year's organisers: the Trinidad and Tobago Field Naturalists' Club, the Life Sciences Department, The University of the West Indies, SpeSeas, Buccoo Reef Trust and the THA (who funded the snorkelling surveys).

Finally hugehanks as well to the Buccoo Government Primary School for graciously hosting us and facilitating use of their space for this year's basecamp.

Stay tuned on Facebook & Instagram for more updates - and to be the first to hear about the next event!

It's Bioblitz Day!

Good morning Bioblitzers!

The weather is a bit gloomy but we are in a sunny mood and excited about starting our species count at midday!

Note that only photos taken within the 24hours and within the survey area will add to this project. Please ensure your camera's clock is correct so your photos are correctly timestamped.

You can check the survey area here: https://www.google.com/maps/d/u/0/viewer?mid=1S2mxiwzS93bcm46qoa2OEL70DZYwxqQ&ll=11.161719057726199%2C-60.79957058571486&z=14

ALL observations count - so remember to photograph even the smallest things you spot, from ants to grass!

Hopefully see many of you at Basecamp at Buccoo Government Primary at 11am, but even if you don't make it to the launch or choose to participate within an official group, you can still add to this group over the weekend as much or as little as you would like! You can also feel free to call into Basecamp at any point over the weekend for ID help, or just to say hello. :)

Stay safe and happy Bioblitzing!
