For the first time ever, Dunedin is joining the City Nature Challenge. Show the world what incredible species like birds, plants, and insects are living in your backyard. As the wildlife capital of New Zealand, we have a lot to prove! Between the 24th and 27th of April, thousands of people from across the globe will look for nature in their backyards.
