Hello Friends at Inaturalist
Firstly want to say what an amazing place this is. Since we (and I) started using this earlier last year we have discovered a great community and a great place to place and systematise our natural history documentation.
So thank you to the creators and an even bigger thank you to the many many people who help with species identification, advise and information.
A group of us in the Indian Himalayan State of Uttarakhand are organizing a winter bio-blitz (January 17th to 16th February 2021)
We want to bring on board first time users - so have to guide them in opening an account (most of them will be phone based) and then start posting observations. Some of these users may be unfamiliar with spoken / written English but are familiar with using phones with English interfaces
The inaturalist interface is a bit tricky for first time users (some of who would be familiar with ebird.org app which is quite different)
So I was looking for any handy tutorials / presentations that are already available - and if feasible (licensing wise) use that as a template to create a tutorial in Hindi . (I would share the final presentation tutorial once it is made and of course credit the original creators)
Some of our past projects are below - these have been focused on small groups where I have been in direct contact with the members
Big Butterfly Month / Year - CEDAR Training Group - (a subset of a larger india wide project but focused on participants from a training group)
Looking forward for advice and anything else as you may think applicable.
Wishes that 2021 be a safe, just, happy and productive year for all of you.
