It’s time for the City Nature Challenge results. Of the 445 cities worldwide, Cape Town came in second!
Every year, people from all around the world participate in the City Nature Challenge to showcase their city’s magnificent flora and fauna. The challenge is divided into two sections, the first of which is the photographic process and the second of which is the process of identifying the species in each and every single photograph shared onto the iNaturalist platform – an app dedicated solely to this challenge.
First place went to La Paz, Bolivia, with 137 345 observations recorded and 5 320 species identified.
Residents of the Mother City recorded 66 144 observations and identified 4 388 species.
Cape Town was not the only city in South Africa to take part in the challenge to discover the country’s incredible biodiversity.
