IDENTIFICATION TIME

It is time for Identifications. Please everyone help.

Our current status is:

  • 23.9% Research Grade
  • 8.1% Casual
  • 68% Needs ID - 63,919 observation need identification, of which
  • * 21,023 dont have any ID at all.

Most Urgent - anyone can help

We need to clear the Unknowns for starters
https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?quality_grade=any&iconic_taxa=unknown&order_by=random&project_id=city-nature-challenge-southern-africa-2023

Please only identify those that you know to family or finer level. Dont waste your time with "Plants" - you need to get it to grasses, proteas, peas, daisies or a similar level to be helpful for the specialists. Just skip those you dont know, others will help with those. For animals, birds, reptiles, fish, insects or snails will be perfect to get it to the experts.

Calling our Specialists

It is time for the specialists to start helping. If you know any particular group well, please help out, even just to genus is fine.
Note that these are across all cities. If you want to restrict your regions, use the filters and add in the province or magisterial district to the filters. Alternative for the Cape Flora, you can use "Greater Cape Floristic Region" in the place.
Use this and add your taxon (family, tribe, genus) in the species box

Specific Plant groups (# are observations needing ID):

Animal Groups:

MARINE

(note most cities east of Garden Route do not have a marine place to add to the list. )

this should also work for South Africa - but will exclude the shore:
