Gotta log 'em all: Dal hosts its first BioBlitz
Last week, Dal’s Science community shed light on the incredible biodiversity found on the university’s urban campus with a unique sort of scavenger hunt.
It was a scene reminiscent of this past summer’s Pokemon GO craze: people of all ages walking around outdoors, pointing their smart phones at seemingly random things, then moving on shortly after.
But on this particular day — Thursday, September 8 — members of the Dal community weren’t adding to their digital collection of fictional creatures. Instead they were locating, recording and identifying as many living things as they could find in a given area on campus.
