Dave Ireland led the successful grant application to Heritage Canada to develop BioBlitz Canada through a partnership with the Canadian Wildlife Federation as part of Canada's 150th birthday. 

Modelled after the Ontario BioBlitz Program, BioBlitz Canada will see community bioblitz events across every province and territory.
