The importance of conducting BioBlitzs is to identify and record as many species as possible in specific locations.

This not only helps “blitzers” understand eco-systems and habitats it also helps to organize people to benefit science.
These “blitzes” also help biologist and ecologist become aware of species that may be declining in numbers, become extinct, or potentially discover new species!

PLANTS | INSECTS | BIRDS | FLOWERS
