City nature challenge

Greater Adelaide

The City Nature Challenge is an international event exploring global urban and near urban biodiversity through the free to use citizen science application iNaturalist. The event first began in 2016 as a challenge between Los Angeles and San Francisco. Since then the event has grown to include 400 cities in 2021. The City Nature Challenge is organised by the Natural History Museum Los Angeles County and California Academy of Sciences, as well as local organisers including ourselves.

How do I participate in the City Nature Challenge for 2024?
  • ​During the 4-day event (April 26th - April 29th, 2024), you will need to make an observation within the Greater Adelaide region.

  • Make an observation by snapping a photo or making a sound recording of a plant or wildlife and upload it to the iNaturalist App or website making sure to include the location.

  • The observations will automatically be collected in the project so that we can all compare them with other cities all over the world.

  • Participate by yourself, in a group, join an event or hold your own.

  • If you would like to hold an event or find out more please, contact us via email.

  • We ask that all Participants follow local health guidelines particularly in regards to Covid-19.

  • Join us for workshops online or in-person
