Chinsegut Photo BioBlitz

The importance of conducting BioBlitzs is to identify and record as much of nature and wildlife species in specific locations. This not only help us understand about our eco-systems and habitats it also helps educate us and brings us closer to nature for a common purpose.
These “blitzes” also help biologist and ecologist become aware of limited or species that may become extinct as well as a possibility to discover new species!
