National Soil Animal Days 2023


Every year around World Animal Day, it's time to go on safari in your own garden - looking for the all-important but often overlooked soil animals. 2023 will mark the 9th edition of the Dutch Soil Animal Days.  The annual event, organised by NIOO and a growing number of partners, takes place this year between 22 September and 8 October.

If you're in the Netherlands and have access to a garden, park or schoolyard, you can join our citizen science project by downloading the chart and looking for soil animals.

More details of how, what and where are on the special Bodemdierendagen-website (in Dutch).

Good luck!
