BioBlitz

Unleash your inner scientist and join us in a race organised as part of the NParks Community in Nature (CIN) Biodiversity Watch, to identify and count as many plants and animals that you can find in a park or nature reserve.

The intensive biodiversity activity, BioBlitz, also provides the opportunity for members of the public to work alongside volunteer scientists.

What you discover will help us understand our local biodiversity better. Who knows, you may even spot a previously undocumented plant or animal species living right in your backyard!

First BioBlitz in Singapore

Did you know that a total of 265 species of flora and fauna were documented at the first BioBiltz event in Singapore? It was held on 25 March 2016 at Pasir Ris Park, where members of the public were involved in various surveys to document nocturnal and diurnal species within the park over a 12-hour period (12.00am - 12.00pm).
