One (of the many) reasons I love iNaturalist is that this is a place of connection. There are so many naturalists who work together and interact here. Those who are experts in specific fields, students yearning to learn more, life-long or newfound enthusiasts of nature... I love interacting and learning from everyone here! Please send me a message to talk science :)
