More taxonomic groups added!

The project's initial list of taxa:

  • Molluscs
  • Echinoderms
  • Actinopterygii (Ray-finned Fishes)
  • Rhodophyta (red algae)
  • Chlorophyta (green algae)
  • Phaeophyceae (brown algae)
  • Zostera (Eelgrasses)

has been expanded to now include include:

  • Cnidarians
  • Ctenophores
  • Porifera
  • Crustaceans
  • Cetaceans

It is recognized that many of the taxonomic groups selected may include species that do not live in 'saltwater'. Many may live in freshwater, brackish water, or may be terrestrial. Examples include freshwater and terrestrial snails, slugs, and of course many fish. This project is an opportunity to share information on how to photograph these groups - what views should be included to facilitate identification, etc.

The objective of this Earth Week Project is to encourage people to explore coastal and oceanic areas. The many species of plants observed along beaches will not be included in this project. Birds observed at sea will not be included. These taxa of course should be recorded and added to iNat - the challenge tho for this one week is to search for and record the growing list of taxonomic groups.

For what it is worth you might want to look at this project. I've worked at it to strip out freshwater and terrestrial species. Still a bit of a work in progress but it works for the most part. https://www.inaturalist.org/projects/worldwide-marine-life
