BioBlitz

FROM 15 TO 19 MAY: SCHOOLS
FROM 20 TO 21 MAY: GENERAL PUBLIC, FREE ENTRANCE AND PARTICIPATION

In 2017 Serralves is organizing the fourth edition of BioBlitz, a lightning-speed inventory exercise of species, conducted with participation of the general public, in a unique initiative in one of Portugal’s historical and urban gardens.
Unlike a scientific inventory, which is limited to biologists and other researchers, BioBlitz is open to families, students, teachers and other community members, who will help researchers find plants and animals in Serralves Park. This is a unique opportunity to help expand the list of identified species, work with the scientific community and learn more about the fauna and flora of Serralves Park.

In 2016, the 3rd edition of BioBlitz Serralves conducted 684 observations of 125 species (including 20 species that hadn’t been observed in previous editions). The most frequently observed species were the common midwife toad, green frog, yellow-spotted salamander, Iberian newt, blackbird, white-toothed shrew and the rosemary beetle. The interactivity between participants and researchers was remarkable, not only with families on Saturday, but also with children who visited Serralves with their schools during the week. Undoubtedly, There’s life in the Park!

During the week (15-19 May) the programme will be dedicated to the participation of schools and during the weekend (20-21 May) is open the general public. 
The detailed programme will be available soon.
