South Florida

2024 was another great year for the CNCSoFlo. We improved on our total observations and unique species observed! 

  • 28,910 Observations

  • 843 Observers

  • 3,499 Species

This year there were 690 cities competing and we still managed to finish in the top 4% in every category! We are so proud of all of our South Florida citizen scientists, organizers, and identifiers. Thank you for helping us showcase South Florida's beautiful and unique biodiversity!

South Florida

In 2023, we added Palm Beach County to the CNCsoflo boundary and it made a huge difference. All of our metrics increased for the third year in a row and we more than doubled our number of observations!

  • 23,098 Observations

  • 1,107 Observers

  • 3,098 Species

Huge thank you to everyone who hosted events, observed, identified, and spread the word about the 2023 CNC!

South Florida

We improved on all of our metrics this year with more observations, species and participants than ever before!

  • 11,349 Observations

  • 593 Observers

  • 2,116 Species

Despite beating our own numbers, we dropped in ranking in all categories. There were more competing cities than ever before, and some seriously fierce challengers. However, as South Florida does, we worked hard and celebrated ever harder. Cheers, to our biodiversity!
