Project Description

Taking part is easy!

Simply download the free iNaturalist app and start uploading photos of all the wild plants, animals and fungi you find. By taking part you’ll be contributing to local, national and global datasets on urban nature to be used by the likes of scientists and conservationists. This rich data will help authorities make informed conservation decisions and help secure a future for your local wildlife.

The app features photo recognition to help you identify what you are looking at, as well as inviting you to join an online community of fellow wildlife enthusiasts to sense check each identification, so don’t worry if you aren’t sure exactly what you have found.
