Cape Town wins biodiversity competition

Last week, the City of Cape Town thanked its residents for their contribution in helping the City win in the international competition that saw over 150 cities from around the world compete. Cape Town participants recorded an impressive 53 775 observations and 4 587 species across the City. Runners-up in the recorded observations category were La Paz, Bolivia, with 46 931 observations and San Diego, US, with 38 241. In the recorded species category runners-up were Hong Kong, with 3 596 species and Houston, US, with 3 367. The competition took place from 26 to 29 April 26 to 29. Capetonians were encouraged to explore the City’s nature reserves and natural open spaces, and to record all of the local plant and animal species that they spotted over the four days.
