Event description

Description

In March 2014, the first ever EcoBlitz was held in the New Zealand in the Nina Valley, Lewis Pass, Canterbury.

Our aim was to transform how secondary students connected with and learned about nature, valued biodiversity, and understood ecological issues. The EcoBlitz brought together 130 scientists, teachers, and conservation professionals with 170 senior high school students from multiple schools to record biodiversity in a robust and repeatable way to monitor change over time.

The event, which included a follow-up day at Lincoln university in October that year, won the Ministry for the Environment 2014 Green Ribbon Award for Education and Communications and also the Paramount Green Ribbon Award.

Unfortunately we have just had confirmation that our bid for funding through Unlocking Curious Minds was unsuccessful. Consequently, we have made the decision to cancel the 2017 Nina Valley EcoBlitz.

We are planning to hold a Nina Valley EcoBlitz in March 2018, but will look for ways to fund it that do not rely so heavily on government funding. We’d love for you to be involved in that event if you are available.

Later this year, most likely in September, we will be holding another EcoBlitz at St Peter’s School, Cambridge. That event has confirmed funding and so will proceed. Please let me know if you are interested in being involved.

Kind Regards

The Ecoblitz Team
