Policy brief "BioBlitz: Promoting cross border Research and collaborative Practices for Biodiversity Conservation"

Download file(s)

This brief covers policy and research topics in biodiversity conservation (e.g., species and protected areas), invasive alien species, coastal and marine management, and strategies for public engagement. The purpose of the policy brief is to synthesise evidence of the Bioblitz approach, highlight the valuable contribution it makes to public engagement, the scientific process, and environmental management and policy, and explore how these potentials of the BioBlitz methodology can be enhanced by increasing cross-boundary cooperation and exchanges.

The policy brief has been developed as collaborative process by a newly founded ECSA working group on BioBlitzes that brings together organisers of such activities from around the world.
