Big Island Students Participate in 2015 BioBlitz

A BioBlitz is a 24-hour event in which teams of volunteer scientists, families, students, teachers, and other community members work together to find and identify as many species of plants, animals, microbes, fungi, and other organisms as possible. This year’s 2015 BioBlitz was held in the Hawai’i Volcanoes National Park, May 15-16, 2015.
