City Nature Challenge 2020

Brighton & Hove is one of the 250 cities around the world taking part in the ‘2020 City Nature Challenge’. The challenge takes place between 24th and 27th April and aims to involve as many people as possible in photographing and indentifying plants, animals, insects, fungi, shells etc. This all to create a worldwide record of urban biodiversity.

As a result of Covid-19, this year’s challenge is limited to the home environment. What can you find in your home, garden or balcony?

Taking part is free, all you need is a smartphone with a camera. Participants download a free app called ‘iNaturalist’ which helps identify and upload all those thing you’ve photographed. Great fun for young and old alike!
