City Nature Challenge 2020: 24-27 April 

WWF-Hong Kong is proud to join forces with other NGOs, universities and schools to help Hong Kong to victory against over 250 cities in the City Nature Challenge, to be held from 24-27 April!
 
The City Nature Challenge is a worldwide competition in which cities compete against each other by taking photographs of nature (plants, insects, birds, fungi, etc) on the free app, iNaturalist. It is also a fantastic way to educate participants on amazing biodiversity that is on their own doorstep.
 
In City Nature Challenge 2019, Hong Kong placed second for Most Species observed, beating several world cities such as Los Angeles, London and Tokyo, and was in the Top 10 for Most Observations and Most Observers. This year we can do even better!
 
To elevate Hong Kong to World Champions and showcase our amazing biodiversity to the world, WWF-Hong Kong will unveil a selection of fun, interactive and informative activities during City Nature Challenge.
 
Ahead of the main competition, we have lined up several pre-CNC activities taking place around Hong Kong to get you warmed up for the April event!

Initiated by the California Academy of Sciences and the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County, the City Nature Challenge is an annual international effort for people to find and document wildlife in cities across the globe and share it via the iNaturalist app.
