We are trying to record as many species as possible within 24 hours on the Isle of Cumbrae. Please come along and help us to celebrate the incredible biodiversity on the island.

We are getting really excited planning for our upcoming Bioblitz. We are gathering support and now have Tom Hastings from the Bat Conservation Trust coming as well as volunteers from the Bute Natural History Society. We are still looking for more people to help identify organisms on the day. Any help would be greatly appreciated even if just identifying really common things with confidence will help.

If you know anyone that may be interested in coming please ask them to email us their contact details so we can keep them informed of the programme. We hope it will be a great opportunity for people to get together and share their expertise. There will be a range of events so everyone can get involved and help out, including children and keen novices to expert biological recorders.

So far our 24 hour event includes: small mammal trapping, moth trap, botany walk, bird walk, rocky shore exploration, OPAL surveys, pond dipping, bat walk, snorkel survey and tree trail.
