The first-ever Trinidad and Tobago Bioblitz was conducted 17-18 November, 2012, in Tucker Valley, Chaguaramas, Trinidad, W.I. More than 80 volunteers helped observe, collect, and identify seven groups of organisms: plants, birds, mammals, reptiles & amphibians, and marine, freshwater, and terrestrial invertebrates. A variety of surveying methods was used, including direct observation, trapping, netting and collecting samples. More than 200 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 628 species were found in 24 hours of surveying.
