The City Nature Challenge (CNC) is originally organised by the California Academy of Sciences and Natural History Museum Los Angeles. It is an ongoing crowd sourced, citizen science project primarily designed to document urban biodiversity and engage city residents in the nature around them (also known as a bioblitz). The project is framed as a common effort between cities to see which can make the most observations, identify the most species, or have the most participants. It started in 2016 and has now expanded to more than 400 areas worldwide.
The goals of the CNC are to:
- Connect people in urban/metro areas to their local nature
- Connect people to each other: build community in person & online around local nature
- Collect urban biodiversity data available to use for science, management, and conservation
- Grow volunteer biodiversity documentation globally
- Have fun through some friendly competition!
The Luxembourg National Museum of Natural History is the national coordinator of this event. IMS have decided to join this initiative and invite all their members to take part in this bioblitz.
