The University BioQuest is a worldwide competition among universities to discover, learn about and help map biodiversity for scientific research and conservation. Started by QuestaGame in 2017 with just two universities (UC Santa Barbara, USA and Sydney University, Australia), the University BioQuest expanded to 20 universities in 2018, with hundreds of participants submitting over 70,000 sightings and identifications. The collected biodiversity data is shared with the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF.org).
