City Nature Challenge Returns for 2021

Over the last year we've had the chance to explore our local areas like never before and now the people of Bristol and Bath are being asked to share what they have discovered in the annual City Nature Challenge.
The Challenge is a global event in which people are invited to take pictures of wildlife in their local communities to help scientists and conservationists build up a picture of the nature that is flourishing in urban areas.
It's free to take part and open to everyone, whether you are an expert, a seasoned City Nature Challenge participant or getting involved for the first time.
All you have to do to join in is download the iNaturalist app, take a photograph of nature in your local area, whether that's a tree, plant or insect or animal, and upload.
You don't even need to know the name of what you are photographing as the app will guide you through some simple questions. A network of experts will review and update the information so you can log back in later and learn more about what has been spotted...
