May 6, 2020 | General News

Dear All

Some of you may well wonder about the outcome of the Garden Route’s participation in the 2020 City Nature Challenge. The challenge was scaled down to an event due to the global pandemic.

Well, despite severe Lockdown we did extremely well. Two hundred and forty-four cities took part and ta-daaaaaaa look at the Garden Route’s results!


Observations 17 743 (10th overall)

Species 2743 (6th overall)

Observers 315


A huge thank you to each and everyone who took part. We made this happen. People became aware of all kinds of critters and plants around them, taking pictures and sharing it on iNaturalist. Some can’t wait for City Nature Challenge 2021. Meanwhile – keep on observing and iNatting!


Cape Town again came first in number of observations. View observations, news and feedback of the rest of South Africa and the world via these links:

Once again thank you!
