This month the ARKive team would like to encourage everyone to get outdoors, explore their local area and discover more about the wildlife found there. Of course, we are a competitive bunch and love a good challenge, which is where the idea for species bingo came from! If you are looking for an activity to entertain the kids during the holidays, or if you fancy taking part in your own nature treasure hunt, why not give ARKive species bingo a try?

It’s easy to get started, just download a copy of the PDF bingo sheet, which can also be found on our fun stuff page, then get outside and begin searching! You could start in your garden or a nearby park, or even visit a local nature reserve. How many species can you find?

No matter where you live, we bet you’ll be surprised at the array of wildlife you can find nearby.

We’d love to hear how you get on, so don’t forget to leave a comment below or get in touch via Twitter or Facebook. Or better still, share your local wildlife photographs with us!

What are you waiting for? Get outside and get exploring!
