Everyone knows about eBird and how it has changed the way we bird. But are you also using iNaturalist for your non-bird sightings? iNaturalist is a way to identify and document all species of plants, animals, and fungi–not just birds–and anyone with a smartphone can be a scientist.
John Reynolds is a BMN member, professor of Biology at Simon Fraser University and the Chair of the Committee on the Status of Endangered Wildlife in Canada. John is promoting iNaturalist as a way to document biodiversity, and to inform everything from the ranges of species in Canada to their conservation status.
In this presentation, John will enthuse about the possibilities that iNaturalist holds for getting insights into the wonderful natural diversity in BC. He will describe how to get started with iNaturalist and provide some tips for staying involved and busy with iNaturalist during the pandemic.
