Guides explained to participants what to look out for. In the second picture participants are on the hunt for plant species using the app ObIdentify.
We can certainly pat ourselves on the back because we have more than doubled the number of species in the area. Out of the 444 observed species, 246 were never seen before in the Tienbunders reserve!
A big achievement thanks to your contribution.
Although many observations still need validation by our volunteers/validators behind the scenes of the observation.org (waarnemingen.be) platform, here are a few new species that caught our attention:
- Nemapogon wolffiella
- Little Long-horn (Cauchas fibulella)
- Cheilosia semifasciata
- The beautiful demoiselle (Calopteryx virgo)
- Geoffroy’s bat (Myotis emarginatus)
- Slow worm (Anguis fragilis)
- Forest cockroach (Ectobius sylvestris)
The collaboration between private landowners and nature organizations, as demonstrated by this event, highlights the importance of recognizing and appreciating the efforts and stewardship of private landowners in conserving and managing natural areas.
