Basically, I’m looking to see if there is a way - other then to click on every observation and see if it’s listed as VU, EN, or CR - to see the conservation status of a bunch of observations, particularly if you can sort them by conservation status or if I’m able to export the data with the conservation status as a field.
for regular users, the only place that i know of where you can query by conservation status or get it for multiple observations in one result set is via the API. see https://api.inaturalist.org/v1/docs/#!/Observations/get_observations.
note that i tried querying against my own observations, and there may or may not be issues picking up certain cases. for example, when i look at my observations of domestic swan geese like this https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/23953914, the observation detail shows status as VU, but the API will not return this observation if i query for cs=VU. it does work for my american bumblebee observations like this https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/24100023 though. so there’s an inconsistency somewhere. i’m just not sure what the inconsistency is.
UPDATE: it looks like the Identify page allows you to query by conservation status (ex. https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/identify?cs=VU), but i don’t think it works on the Explore page for whatever reason.
FYI, I found this link for viewing what auto obscured taxons you have observed: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?place_id=any&taxon_geoprivacy=obscured&user_id=whimbrelbirder&verifiable=any&view=species
Just replace ”whimbrelbirder” with your username.
yup. it’s worth noting that not all observations with a conservation status will be auto obscured.
