Windsor BioBlitz discovers 12 species never-before recorded in Canada

How much do we not know about our environment? I mean, it's not like Windsor is remote or even recently settled - how could we miss these species, and how many more are we missing?

The Bioblitz in Essex county was the first of its kind ever to be held there and is a biological inventory and awareness program that teams biological experts with local volunteers. Held at Ojibway Prairie Complex including Ojibway Shores on the Detroit River in Windsor, the event saw participation from 30 experts and approximately 100 participants on June 28-29, 2014 with the primary objective of documenting all flora and fauna they encountered.
