From hikers to hunters, birders to beach-combers, the world is filled with naturalists, and many of us record what we find. What if all those observations could be shared online? You might discover someone who finds beautiful wildflowers at your favorite birding spot, or learn about the birds you see on the way to work. If enough people recorded their observations, it would be like a living record of life on Earth that scientists and land managers could use to monitor changes in biodiversity, and that anyone could use to learn more about nature.
That's the vision behind iNaturalist.org. So if you like recording your findings from the outdoors, or if you just like learning about life, join us!
This data is provided via a darwin core archive exported from iNaturalist. Only research grade observations are exported by iNaturalist.
iNaturalist observations achieve research grade when 1) the iNaturalist community agrees with the observer's ID, where an "agreeing" identification is one that matches exactly or is of a child taxon of the observer's ID, 2) the observation has a date,3) the observation is georeferenced, 4) the observation has a photo.
