Everyone can be a scientist!

Despite these unprecedented times, plans for SEA's BioBlitz 2020 are under way. Traditionally, a BioBlitz is an event where groups of scientists, naturalists and members of the community come together to observe and record nature. SEA is researching the world-renowned app, iNaturalist, so that the St. Croix community can participate without hands-on guidance from an expert and regardless of their knowledge of our local flora and fauna. Everyone can be a scientist! The app will help compile our data whether we are all together in the field or if social distancing and event capacity limitations are still in place.

When we first announced our plan for BioBlitz 2020, we were excited to add the West End to our data collection. Now, we are thrilled to report the addition of a third site: The Estate Thomas Experimental Forest. The ability to compare data from 2010 to 2020, as well as from East, West and mid-island, will help us better understand St. Croix's biodiversity and the factors that threaten its survival.

Since a BioBlitz is all about collecting data on plant and wildlife species, we thought you might also be interested in knowing that after two years of no recorded Leatherback Sea Turtle activity at Southgate Coastal Reserve, we have documented three Leatherback activities this year!

We are looking forward to engaging the community in BioBlitz 2020!
