An online nature diary is being launched at the beginning of the spring season. This chance today is given to the wildlife lovers across the UK. They have the chance to contribute to the first ever crowd-sourced nature diary. However, this initiative is to celebrate the first official day of spring.
Moreover, Entries of 150 words maximum in the online Diary and photographs can be uploaded today. This can be done via the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) website. However, writer Abi Andrews will select the best submissions to celebrate the return of springtime.
Dr. Pippa Marland is the part of the Land Lines research team at the University of Leeds. He told: “The crowd-sourced spring diary will give nature lovers across the UK. Also the chance to participate in an event that combines the best traditions of citizen science. Combining with the opportunity to produce their own nature writing.” Further, he added, “It will offer a unique snapshot of the beginning of spring this year and mark an important moment in the history of nature writing in the UK.”
The National Trust’s Dr. David Bullock said “This is an amazing time of year as nature starts to wake up with the lengthening of the days and the climbing temperatures,”
