Import to project from observation - location field

I have created a project to track the records of an endangered species in an area. Since the observation locations are obscured, I would like that project to be able to import observations that have a location field set for the name of that area. I am not seeing a way to do this offhand, any help please? Maybe there is a better way?

This isn’t possible, you can only use an actual iNaturalist Place for projects. What I think you’re describing is the locality note.

you can manually add observations to a “traditional” project. not sure if that would satisfy your particular needs though.

Thank you for this info! This sounds like it should work, though it will require quite a bit of added work on my part.

Tiwane, many of the observations for this species have a location tag in the notes or observation field.
