I’m trying to use the iNat API to fetch data for specific taxa from the IUCN Red List. Unfortunately the IUCN’s IDs are totally different from thos used by iNat. I am not a biologist, and I’m very new to this, so please bear with my naïveté.
Is there a way to “convert” an IUCN taxon ID to a iNat taxon ID ? I wonder how the Red List’s website “knows” the iNat ID for a given species when they fetch images from iNat.
Unfortunately using the API with a taxon name returns too many records.
Thank you very much in advance for your help,
