Hi everyone! I work for the National Institute for Biodiversity here in Ecuador and we have been thinking of a way to better the communication between the authorities in charge of denouncing them and process these observations. We recon agility to identify these species is key to mantain a proper process since many of these legal denounces don’t proceed due to delays , particularly in identification efficiency and the way Environmental Police and the governmental institutions in charge have a communication between them to proceed with these cases. So we though of iNaturalist to do so, and we’re thinking of ways to better the timing that users see these observations, creating a sort of alert button that pops up inmediately whenever these kinds of observations are being uploaded, so the identifiation is quicker and also the notification to the interested users. Now, you can get iNaturalist notifications on your email, but do you know of any other ways to enhance these notifications or communication between institutions in your country?
@ tiwane can you please spellcheck the title, and/or in some way boost this, or categorize this very important contribution from a highly respected member of our national scientific community who is also a leader of the iNaturalist Ecuador network.
This topic warrants serious discussion, here, or amongst a more mature audience if the admins see fit.
iNaturalist doesn’t send push notifications to apps, nor do we send immediate email alerts aside from those for new messages. We do generate notifcations on the website and in the Android app for @ mentions, so that might be the best bet to alert people quickly.
Hola, coincido en que sería bueno crear el proyecto para agregar estos registros, con un campo de observación asociado. En cuanto a las notificaciones no estoy seguro si existe alguna manera de suscribirse a un determinado “campo de observación” https://www.inaturalist.org/subscriptions?type=observation_field para que al cargar página de inicio aparezcan automáticamente las observaciones?
