Start spreading the news! New York City needs YOU to help find all of the creatures that call our city home. In both the paved and green spaces of our city, many species survive and thrive. Will you join us in this citizen science quest to catalog our city's great biodiversity?
From April 27th to 30th, we're asking all New Yorkers - residents, visitors, commuters, students, teachers, pedestrians, park lovers, parents, children, EVERYONE - to become citizen scientists and help us make as many iNaturalist observations as we can. Let's put NYC on top!
How can you get started? It's easy! Download the iNaturalist app to your mobile device. During the time from April 27-30, use the app to upload photos of organisms to the iNaturalist and the iNaturalist community will help you identify them. It's as simple as that!
