I don’t think we’ve had one of these before (if we have, I apologize. please link it in the comments if so)
Feel free to post links to any projects you want to raise awareness of! They can be things you manage yourself or someone else’s project that you want more people to join and add observations to.
I’ll start off with 2 here in this post since I’ve been spending a lot of time working on them:
More info on this project can be found in the project description and this thread: (https://forum.inaturalist.org/t/things-posted-to-inaturalist-that-were-the-first-ever-observation-of-that-organism/11401)
Thanks to @thebeachcomber for getting this one up and running
This is a project I started recently to track wild-caught birds that have been observed in cages by iNaturalist users. If you see any captive birds being sold that don’t appear to be captive bred or domestic, please add them to this project! I would also like to emphasize that zoo or aviary birds should not be added.
Just for fun I’ll include this one here as well. Shout outs to whoever came up with this idea
