A BioBlitz is usually an event in which teams of volunteer scientists, families, students,
educators, and other community members work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible in a specific geographic location. These activities not only highlight the biodiversity of an area, demonstrating the importance of exploration and conservation, but also generate quality data to be used by scientists and citizen scientists alike (National Geographic Alliance BioBlitz Handbook, 2016).
