Every year, the National Geographic Society collaborates with the National Park Service to host BioBlitz. A bioblitz is a 24-hour species inventory, where teams of students, scientists, park rangers, teachers, and volunteers work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible.
National Geographic's 2012 BioBlitz took place on August 24-25 in Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. This GeoStory captures the spirit and discoveries of the 2012 BioBlitz.
