The second Trinidad & Tobago Bioblitz was conducted 21-22 September 2013, in the Arima Valley, Trinidad, West Indies (W.I.). More than 100 volunteers helped observe, collect, and identify a diverse range of organisms: plants, fungi, birds, mammals, reptiles, amphibians, terrestrial invertebrates and freshwater organisms. A variety of surveying methods was used, including direct observation, trapping, netting and sampling. More than 150 members of the public came to watch the volunteers work, visit information stands staffed by members of various organisations, and take part in guided walks. A total of 740 species of organisms were reported after 24 hours of surveying; this total was updated to 771 after further analysis of specimens and results.
