With Canada's sesquicentennial just around the corner, a new project called BioBlitz Canada 150 aims to photograph and document the country's natural beauty. By mobilizing volunteers from across the country, the project will help to document Canada's unique biodiversity in real time.

BioBlitz Canada 150 is a project that involves enlisting the help of 10,000 volunteers and professional naturalists to document Canada's biodiversity. The project will involve a series of 35 BioBlitzes, which will take place from coast to coast. These events will require Canadians to capture photos of as many species as possible and make an inventory of the creatures living in each area. There will also be 10 private BioBlitzes that will be closed to the public for more science-intensive study.

By creating a photographic record of Canada's unique biodiversity, the BioBlitz helps to celebrate the many living creatures that call the country home.
