Fake website when searching for species

Did a search for a species and came up with lots of results from something called “inaturalist.ca” which my browser didn’t like and asked if I really wanted to go there. I didn’t!

Something you are aware of?

As far as I am aware that is the official Canadian inaturalist site.

You can check the network here



@tiwane There is a problem with the .ca site, I am getting warnings on Safari that it is not secure. The .org site works fine.

Sorry folks, this is a known issue with the Canadian site that started at 8 pm Eastern last night. It should be resolved today. In the meantime, you can use inaturalist.org instead.


The certificate has been updated so inaturalist.ca is good to go now.
