Hey folks! Just wondering if there was any wisdom the collective brain of the iNaturalist forums could share regarding projects.
I’m currently the admin for a project called ‘Wildlife of Glasgow’, the purpose of which is to document animals in and around the City of Glasgow, and act as something of a spotters guide. I also hope that one day it could be a place where people share thoughts or tips about where to see wildlife around the city (e.g. this journal post).
Thing is, even though it’s got a good number of observations there aren’t many active members, and I’m keen to take the project’s usefulness up a level. In your experience:
- What are some really useful things that you’ve seen iNaturalist projects do or share?
- How do you encourage people to get stuck in and involved with a project?
- Do you have any other thoughts on what makes a good project?
As much as possible I want the proect to be a useful tool for any users who live in or visit Glasgow, so I thought it would be good to get the feedback of folk more experienced with iNaturalist than myself. Thanks in advance!
