Category Topics

Nature Talk

This category is a catch-all for nature-related topics that aren’t directly related to iNaturalist. It’s not a place to get help with identifying your nature observations (that’s what is for!). Nature Talk is for discussing cool articles, organisms, ecology, community science, stories, taxonomy puns, gear discussion, etc. Basically this is a place for iNat users to discuss their nature-y interests with other folks who are into nature.


This is a place to discuss general iNaturalist-related topics that are not specific Feature Requests or Bug Reports. The iNat Forum is also not a place to seek help with identification or to post unconstructive complaints/grievances.


This category is a place for iNaturalist site curators to discuss general topics related to curation that might not be great fits for the General category.
