The 2015 Ontario BioBlitz saw its largest turnout yet, with over 700 registered participants. Blitzers spread out to survey 19 different sites across the Don River watershed. Base camp was hosted at the Ontario Science Centre in Toronto, Ontario. Easily the most urban watershed that had been surveyed to date, the Don River boasted plenty of biodiversity, with at least 1038 species catalogued across the animal, plant, and fungi kingdoms.
Our team split up to photograph this wide-reaching event. I documented Burton Lim, the Assistant Curator of Mammalogy of the ROM as he took attendees on a Bat Walk, surveying species in the area while educating families on the role bats play in their ecosystems.
