SIS was one of 30 schools taking part in this Bioblitz last week. Our school was able to contribute 643 observations from 96 students and staff, identifying over 150 species. We ended up coming 13th overall in the competition. The data collected provides valuable information about the biodiversity around our school grounds and in Hong Kong. We look forward to the next opportunity where we can perform better. Students had fun looking for all the different species as well as contributing to this very important survey.
The Hong Kong Inter-School City Nature Challenge (HKISCNC) is a friendly 4-day competition in which secondary schools find and log the most species in and around their campuses, gathering more data on Hong Kong’s urban biodiversity.
