Worldwide Engagement for Digitizing Biocollections, or WeDigBio, is a global data campaign, virtual science festival, and local outreach opportunity, all rolled into one. The annual, 4-day WeDigBio events mobilize participants to create digital data about biodiversity specimens, including fish in jars, plants on sheets, insects on pins, and fossils in drawers. During a typical WeDigBio event, some participants are at onsite events hosted by museums, field stations, universities, science classrooms, or other organizations. Those onsite events provide oppor

Spring WeDigBio Event

Gather your friends, colleagues, students and family to mobilize natural history collections data during WeDigBio and support critical biodiversity research! This spring, WeDigBio will take place April 8-11, 2021.

Similar to last year, we are anticipating that most, if not all WeDigBio events will take place online, enabled by Zoom, Twitter, and other social platforms. The April 2020 event was the most productive yet and we’re hoping for another great turnout this year!
