815 protected areas and more!

We're continuing to enter in the boundaries of protected areas around British Columbia, and we're now over 800, with about 200 more to go! We've moved through creating these projects several weeks faster than we thought we would, and are excited for the Spring to hit so we can all spend lots more time making iNat observations!

We're now at 15,535 observations of 2639 species. More than 900 people have made these observations.

What can we do this summer? Push the BC Parks observations over 75,000? Over 3500 species? At least 30 parks with 1000 observations each? More than 2000 observers?

It's shaping up to be a great year of iNaturalisting around the province, and we can't wait to see the amazing things we'll see! Let's all get out there and record as many observations as we can- and remember to have fun, be safe!

Springing into the BC Parks Big Summer!

As the weather warms and it Springs up more and more (we've found 3 Anna's Hummingbird nests in the past week, saw our first swallows today, and White-crowned Sparrows are singing all over), we're getting very excited for the BC Parks Big Summer! Using iNaturalist to record biodiversity in some of BC's most beautiful places is a dream: getting out in nature, being a naturalist, taking photos, and collecting data that helps us to better understand the natural world are our passions. What more can we learn about our protected areas? What new species can we find? Can we get dozens of parks with at least a thousand observations each? Will we push past 2000 observers? Who will find the most species this year? Who will see the rarest species? Who will observe something way out of its range, or in a totally new, unknown location? Who will take the best photo? Find out the answers to all of these, and more, during the BC Parks Big Summer!
