Mazatlan in City Nature Challenge
Mazatlan participated for the first time in the City Nature Challenge (CNC). From April 26 to 29, 511 participants in Mazatlan registered 27,683 observations and 2,222 species were registered.
The CNC is an international effort for people to find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe.
It’s a bioblitz-style competition where cities are in a contest against each other to see who can make the most observations of nature, who can find the most species, and who can engage the most people. CNC was created by citizen science staff at the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (Lila Higgins) and California Academy of Sciences (Alison Young).
