Contribute to a global snapshot of biodiversity with National Geographic’s Great Nature Project

From 15-25 May 2015, people all over the world are documenting biodiversity as part of a global snapshot for National Geographic’s Great Nature Project. Grab a camera or phone and take photos of wild plants and animals, then upload and share them on greatnatureproject.org. The goal of the global snapshot, which is repeated annually, is to document biodiversity all over the world during a specific window of time. Over time, this will provide data that can be used to answer scientific questions or provide useful information to decision-makers. Use the initiative to help keep track of what was documented, see what amazing biodiversity other people observe, and even get help identifying different species.
