Thanks to all, our official results and an invitation to a new project

Thanks to everyone who contributed to the event at the beginning of May - detailed results below. I am already looking forward to next years event - and am hoping that we will be joined by other Manitoba urban areas next spring.

I would also like to invite you all to join a new project Manitoba Nature. I hope that we can use this project to continue our collaboration in learning more about nature here in Manitoba.

the official results....

The 6th annual City Nature Challenge had over 10,000 more people participate compared to last year, and for the first time ever, we made over one million observations in the four days of the challenge!
Here are the collective results:
1,270,767 observations
45,300+ species, including more than 2,100 rare/endangered/threatened species
52,777 observers
Most-observed species globally: Mallard (Anas platyrhynchos)

Here in the Winnipeg Region, our results were:
2,432 observations
423 species
63 observers
We contributed our fair share of mallards but in our count the mallard was pushed into second place by the Canada Goose.

Since you can't click the links in the infographic, here are some of the interesting observations from around the world:
Peregrine Falcon (Falco peregrinus)
Lixus placidus weevil
Turkish Snail (Helix lucorum)
Witches’ Cauldron (Sarcosoma globosum)
Blainville’s Horned Lizard>(Phrynosoma blainvillii)

Euglossa macrorhyncha bee
Adelpha zea butterfly
Short-clubbed Wasp Orchid (Chiloglottis reflexa)

The City Nature Challenge also contributed to the most observations uploaded in a week on
iNaturalist again - and also gave iNaturalist the first two weeks ever with over one million
observations uploaded!
