And the 2019 Lawrenceville BioBlitz winner is … Brandon Li ’19! A three-time winner (2016, 2017, and 2019), Li identified 652 species in the 2019 competition.
Lawrenceville BioBlitz continues to grow, from 67 participants identifying 538 species in 2016 to this year, when 137 young naturalists identified 2,274 species.
Li is clearly not stranger to identifying flora and fauna. Earlier this year, the University of Chicago press published his field guide to fresh water fishes of the Amazonian Ecuador, Fishes of the Nangaritza River: Cordillera del Cóndor, Ecuador. He presented on the same subject at the 62nd annual Gesneriad Society Convention last July. Li counts among his many honors a 2017-18 Welles Grant, the 2018 Elly and Giorgio Petronio-Stony Brook Garden Club Environmental Award, and a 2018 National Scholastic Art and Writing Medal.
