Please turn on your phones for this nature walk.
The City Nature Challenge was founded by @alisonkestrel and @lilamayhiggins and organized by the citizen science / community science teams from the California Academy of Sciences @CalAcademy and the Natural History Museum of L.A. County @NHMLA
The challenge took place in two parts:
April 30 – May 3 Taking pictures of wild plants and animals
May 4 – May 9 Identifying what was found
Together 52,000 people from around the world, made over 1.27 million observations of 45k+ species. More than 2,100 rare/endangered/threatened species were documented in the 419 cities and 44 countries that took part.
