Destination Garden Route - GardenRoute City Nature Challenge

City Nature Challenge

The City Nature Challenge is an annual, global, community science competition to document urban biodiversity. The challenge is a bioblitz that engages residents and visitors to find and document plants, animals, and other organisms living in urban areas.  Cities around the world will be competing to see who can make the most observations of nature, find the most species, and engage the most people in the 2020 City Nature Challenge.


City Nature Challenge 2020

Diarize the dates now:

  • 24-28 April 2020 (that is a long weekend after Easter & after the schools return, so plan to holiday in your city).
  • 28 April – 3 May: Identification of observations.
This year five southern African cities will be taking part: Cape Town (defending its 2019 victory as most biodiverse city on Earth), Durban, Gaborone, Garden Route, Nelson Mandela Bay, Tswane.
If you cannot be in those cities taking part in the challenge, please help us with identifications in the week afterwards!
Join the fun!
