Help The Natural History Museum document UK wildlife: 26–29 April

Help The Natural History Museum document UK wildlife! All you need to do to take part is get out into nature, take some snaps of wildlife (plants, animals, bugs) and upload them to the free iNaturalist app between 26 and 29 April. The app will help you to identify what you’ve seen and if it doesn’t know, experts will be examining the photos in May. So, gather up your friends, family or classmates and help make London the city with the most recorded species!

As part of the challenge, the Ecology Centre will be hosting an event on Saturday 27 April, where you can explore Gillespie Park, look for wildlife and take part in fun activities.
