In its eight year, Biology Week 2019 saw events take place all over the world that celebrated biology; see highlights on Twitter. It got more people than ever involved in and aware of the subject, and encouraged as many people as possible to embrace their enthusiasm for the subject.

Events get more diverse every year and can be run by anyone with enthusiasm for biology; science festivals, Big Biology Days, dino digs, competitions, lectures, fungal forays, music and storytelling - anyone and everyone can get involved.
