Scheduled Downtime July 10-11

iNaturalist will be offline for up to 2 hours beginning at 9pm Pacific Daylight Time (UTC-7) on Wednesday, July 10 (that’s UTC 04:00 on July 11). Click to see in your local time .

During this time, you will not be able to post observations from the mobile apps or interact with the website or API in any way. The iNatForum will still be active.

The timing will likely be most inconvenient for those in Europe, Africa, Asia, and Oceania. We apologize in advance for anyone who is inconvenienced. Please make other plans during that time.

Similar to past scheduled downtimes, this maintenance is required to better manage iNaturalist’s growing dataset but these behind-the-scenes improvements to the database will not be visible.



Thank you for letting us know in advance.


There goes my spree of uploading observations after finding stable internet connection on vacation in Washington.

I was so exhausted from being out in the field and in the heat earlier in the day that I slept right through it.

But, honestly, no one is actually disturbed by a little downtime from this or any other website, right? Right?

A few hours of sleep between iNat shifts for me too :rofl:
