Last day for City Nature Challenge IDs!

Kia ora everyone,

By the end of today, Sunday, the totals will be locked in for this year's City Nature Challenge. Ōtautahi/Christchurch is doing well. We're ahead in NZ and Australia and currently 24th in the world for observations and 21st in the world for species. That's in comparison to some of the world's largest cities. You can watch all the global action here, with more than 1.2 million species and counting(!).

It's not over yet in Ōtautahi. There are still plenty of observations to identify, and you've got until the end of the day to upload any last observations you made during the challenge weekend.

You can see all of the wild observations still requiring identifications here:

Importantly, that page by default doesn't show the planted and captive things, and we've got a lot of great observations of the species we plant and grow in the city. You can identify those here:

If you're in the centre of Christchurch today, we've got a room on the ground floor of Tūranga, the central library, where we're identifying and uploading. Stop on by and say kia ora and join in the fun.

Also, we'll have a celebration of all the amazing City Nature Challenge observations and observers from Ōtautahi/Christchurch at 6 pm on Tuesday at Tūranga. Everyone is welcome!
