Thanks!

A big "Thank You" to all of the participants, observers and identifiers who participated in the Toledo Zoo Project PRAIRIE 2022 Bioblitz. The final tally for this year:

Observations - 1,347
Species - 317 - Plant species - 198 (62.5%); Insect species - 78 (24.6%); Mollusk species - 4 (1.3%); Arachnid species - 9 (2.8%); Reptile species - 2 (0.63%); Bird species - 4 (1.25%); Mammal species - 2 (0.63%); Fungi species - 19 (6.0%)
Identifiers - 161
Identifications - 1,721
Observers - 134

For comparison, here is the 2021 Bioblitz tally:
Observations - 1,217 - Plant species - 209 (64.3%); Insect species - 85 (26.2%); Mollusk species - 2 (0.62%); Arachnid species - 8 (2.5%); Reptile species - 5 (1.5%); Bird species - 3 (0.92%); Fungi species - 6 (1.9%)
Species - 326 -
Identifiers - 237
Identifications - 1,753
Observers - 45

All in all, the 2022 Bioblitz was comparable to 2021. One big exception though was the number of observers. That jumped three fold, from 45 to 134 which is fantastic.

There will likely be more posts in the days and weeks to come. If you have images you took during the Bioblitz period with the date/time stamp, those will be counted so if you have a few you haven't posted, please take the time to do so.

Again, thanks to all who participated.

2022 Bioblitz coming close to the end

What an amazing job done by all the participants in the Toledo Zoo Project PRAIRIE 2022 Bioblitz. 1,325 observations of 314 species with 20 schools participating in the project. Observations were made up of 195 plant species, four mollusks, 77 insect species,10 species of arachnids, two reptile species, four birds, two mammals and 19 species of fungi.

Congratulations to Perrysburg JHS for tallying up the most observations so far with 377! Well done. But Wintergarten Park is hot on your heels with 308 observations.

It will be great to see what observations are added in the last few days. With the changing temperatures new species will be looking for cover and food and each day a new opportunity to add observations to the project.

So get up, get out and explore.

Bioblitz Extended!

Good news!! I'm extending the 2022 Project PRAIRIE Bioblitz for an additional week, ending on Friday, October 14 at midnight. This will give everyone, especially those who have yet to post data, a chance to get in the game. I'll post more updates next week. Good luck!

15 More Species!!

As of 8am EDST on Thursday, October 6, the 2022 Project PRAIRIE Bioblitz has produced 1,192 observations of 304 species by 105 observers. The 2021 Project PRAIRIE Bioblitz produced 1,170 observations of 318 species by 42 observers. We've already surpassed 2021 numbers of observations and observers. We need only 15 more species this year to surpass 2021. We can do it! Let's find 15 additional species by the end of the day Friday, October 5th.

Toledo Zoo Project Prairie update- 27 September 2022

In the first week of the BIOBLITZ 641 observations of 208 species by 84 observers have been logged. Top school so far is Wintergarden Park with 300 observations. But there is still 9 days left for observations to be uploaded to the project.

Thank you to all the teachers and volunteers for taking the time to encourage the students to participate and explore their own backyard. You are truly inspiring the next generation of environmentalist.
Keep up the good work!
