Local BioBlitz Challenge 2013 encouraged local sites to hold a BioBliltz to raise awareness of biodiversity recording and conservation. The main element of a BioBlitz is to undertake recording of species found within the participating area.
Field observations over a 24 hour period
Participating sites were Abbeyleix Bog, Co. Laois, Bull Island and St. Anne’s Park, Dublin City, Limerick City and the Gap of Dunloe, Co. Kerry.
The Limerick City event was held on 24 & 25 August 2013, and the others on 7 & 8 June, 2013.
The data quality is good as almost all data was either collected or checked by recognised experts.
