Calling all natural scientists !

January 7, 2015

2015 Bioblitz scientist and cultural practioner registration closes soon.

We need scientists from biological and other disciplines (committed UH student scientists can qualify as well). We have a unique opportunity to conduct a massive 24-hour inventory of Hawai’i Volcanoes NP resources. The event will take place May 15-16, and the focus is flexible depending on your interests.

The Bioblitz is a unique combination of taxonomic inventory, public outreach, science, and indigenous knowledge education. At its core, it is a 24-hour event in which trained scientists, Hawaiian cultural practitioners, families, students, teachers, and other community members will come together to explore the many organisms that make up the park. The event is a wonderful opportunity for scientists and traditional knowledge experts to involve the public in their hands-on field work and approaches to experiencing, observing, and understanding the natural world.
