Thank you to everyone who participated in Audubon International's BioBlitz 2018! This year's event recorded over 2,000 unique species of animals, plants, fungi, and insects living on golf courses. Highlights from 2018 included:
100% increase in the average number of species counted since 2015
95% increase in total participants from 2017
85% increase in golf course participation from 2017
BioBlitz is a free species-counting competition designed to showcase the environmental value of the natural habitats found on golf courses. Participants such as golfers and their families, youth groups, community members, and local environmental experts gather to enjoy nature while counting plant and animal species located on each property. The program is open to any golf course worldwide, including those unaffiliated with Audubon International.
