About the Nature Talk category

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 iNaturalist itself 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 not a place for:

  • Political discussions

  • Your thoughts on the latest (non-nature-related) movie, song, or book

  • Arguments

  • Rants or tirades

  • Solely promoting your work or cause and only linking to other sites (eg Instagram, YouTube, personal site, etc). If you want to share your work, it should be framed in such a way as to start a discussion here on the forum.
