Do you see interesting wildlife around your home, or when you’re out and about in the wilderness? Have you ever encountered a plant or animal that you couldn’t identify? If you wish to be part of a Canadian community to share your discoveries and questions with, iNaturalist Canada is perfect for you!
CWF has teamed up with the Royal Ontario Museum to provide a place where Canadians can record and share what they see in nature, meet other nature observers, and learn about our wildlife. By participating as a citizen scientist, you can contribute to a growing wealth of knowledge of Canadian species and help conserve our natural world. The benefit of the vast online community of knowledgeable people on iNaturalist Canada is that there is always someone to help with identifying your observation. Who knows, your observation may help scientists to learn more about a species’ whereabouts!
As of Thursday, June 11, you can be part of this community by visiting the newly launched bilingual website: iNaturalist.ca and/or by downloading the app at the iTunes and Google Play store. The Android version will be customized for Canada, while the iPhone version will be available in the next month. iPhone users can still participate in the meantime by downloading the iNaturalist.org app, and switch to the Canadian version when it’ll be available.
