BioBlitz Ten Bunders 1000 Species Day
27 May @ 5:00 - 28 May @ 4:00
We will comb the beautiful nature reserve “Tienbunder”!
🗓️ May 27-28 in Zoutleeuw, Belgium
The aim is to search for as many plant and animal species as possible in 24 hours and register them via observation.org ( observations.be ). You can do this on your own or via one or more of the guided tours organized on Saturday.
Throughout the day, 5 guided tours will be organized by local species experts on the Pardon domain (private property).
Registration for these themed walks is mandatory.
Prior knowledge isn’t required, some experience with observation.org and the supporting apps (ObsIdentify, ObsMapp, iObs) is useful. Explanations on how to use these will be provided on site for inexperienced users.
Registration for the moth walk (morning)
Registration for the early bird walk (morning)
Registration for the flora walk (morning)
Registration for the insects and invertebrates walk (afternoon)
Registration for the bat walk (evening/night)
Participants who prefer to participate in the BioBlitz on their own, can visit the Pardon domain (private property) throughout the day for information (not possible to park on the property).
A presentation on the use of observation.org and its supporting apps (ObsIdentify, ObsMapp, iObs) will be played continuously. An area counter will keep a live overview of the species found. You can also pick up a plan with a mapped BioBlitz walk or a search map for children.
This event is organized as part of the LIFE ENPLC project, a European-funded project that’s building bridges between private landowners and nature organisations. Unique for this BioBlitz is the opportunity to visit Claude Pardon’s private property (part of the “Tienbunders” nature reserve). Only for this BioBlitz, the property will be opened to the public.
During the 1000 species day, you can add your own observations to our species list via observation.org or the apps Obsmapp, iObs or Obsidentify. The entered data will be checked by internal and external experts and then used for scientific research. This way, you contribute to mapping biodiversity.
