Blogger Bioblitz Updates II

i-15eb81a23c3608c0e7b48b3ddf3b8988-bloggerbioblitzlogo_mini_nobirdy.jpgWe have submission guidelines and a full game plan for the next couple of weeks.

As of today, there are 50 participants (including the birth of a new blog). Please send me an e-mail and register at the Google group if you are interested in joining us, and the Flickr group if you plan on photoblogging the event.

Jenn has crafted a fine array of buttons for participants and supporters of the Blogger Bioblitz. Check them out, download and help us spread the word while adding a bit of spring flare to your blog or website.

Greg has contacted a friend from Discover Life, who has graciously lent his expertise in georeferencing. Read the entire thread here. New developments at Google Maps have provided us with a separate medium as well.

If you need help with identifying anything, check out Bev’s list of ID pages.

For a full explanation of the event, please see this page.

The Ecological Society of America published a plug for the Blogger Bioblitz on their blog, ESA News and Views. Thanks Cliff!

NWF has also given us a plug on their blog, Wildlife Promise.

The updated participant list is below the fold.

Here is the list as it stands this morning:

    Here is the note from John Pickering at Discover Life:


    If you can get all the results into an excel spreadsheet, we can map it for you no problem. It takes about twenty minutes on our end.

    We need the country, state, county, location, latitude and longitude, if possible. If you can get the latitude and longitude, we can map it to the exact point. If not, we can map it down to the county, or the state, depending on how localized you can get with the results.

    When you have the spreadsheet finished, save it as a text file, and either put it on your website (preferably) or email it to us. If you put it on your site, we can automatically harvest the data and check for periodic updates.

    Great! My Google group was set to “no mail” so I haven’t gotten any of the group messages (I thought it was awfully quiet). Just now going back to real the messages. Sounds like a lot of interest. This will be fun!
