How to participate?

Your mission is to find as many plant and animal species as possible! From midnight on 20 May to midnight on 22 May, we are offering 48 hours of discovery for all ages! Take part in a big treasure hunt in and around your home or neighbourhood, or join nature experts in one of the activities organised in the nature reserves in Belgium and at botanic gardens. You don’t have to be a seasoned nature expert to do this! All you need to do is download the app ObsIdentify on your smartphone (see below). The artificial intelligence will do the identification work for you! Shall we?
