Come join us for the Yukon’s BioBlitz in the Kluane region. All are welcome to participate for the event which is part of Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations. BioBlitz Canada and the Canadian Wildlife Federation are supporting a series of public BioBlitz’s across the nation and the Yukon Conservation Data Centre and Parks Canada in partnership with the Kluane First Nation and Champagne and Aishihik First Nations are hosting the Yukon’s 150BioBlitz in the Kluane area, including the Kluane National Park and Reserve.

A BioBlitz is a biological 'treasure hunt' to find as many species as possible within a short time. There will be talks about this unique environment, including the recent ’river piracy’ which has been studied for the first time in modern history, leading up to the event as well as expert-led nature walks in the Kluane area. Join us in exploring the changed landscape and collecting data on bugs, birches and everything in between. With your help we will contribute to a database of Canadian species in 2017 which can be accessed by anyone at any time now and into the future.

Make sure you download the free Kluane National Park and Reserve of Canada Guide. The guide has over 476 species known to the area. Taking photos through the iNaturalist app of the animals and plants you will help us track the animals and plants you see. Downloading is important as there is limited cell tower reception. For more information on how to download and use the guide, click here.
