iNaturalist is Calling All Community Scientists

Have you been baffled by a bird call, or stumbled upon an elusive amphibian? If you spend much time in nature, odds are at some point you’ve made a nature observation worth sharing with the wider world. But did you know your observations can also contribute to science?

The Hakai Institute is undertaking a new project using iNaturalist, a global community science database, to record and learn about biodiversity in British Columbia’s Discovery Islands, and we want your help!

Join us in using iNaturalist to document the plant and animal life you discover and contribute to scientific projects at Hakai and around the world.
