Bioblitz

Maputo / Marracuene / Inhaca Island

 

Bioblitz is a unique Service Learning project that has its roots in citizen science, which is taking the biological world by storm.

We record the vital distributions and sometimes behaviours of not-known and well-known species.

The data is uploaded to the animal demographic unit of the University of Cape Town (www.adu.org.za), and contributes toward building an up to date record of sub-Sahara fauna, so that we can make informed decisions about where to focus conversation efforts. Our students are recording a snapshot of the present to help conserve wildlife for the future. While doing it, they learn to love, appreciate and identify with their special Mozambican home.
