The upcoming iNaturalist, or iNat, courses are taking place as part of National Science week at NMU. Learners, adults, beginners and advanced options will be presented by Dr Tony Rebelo of SANBI. iNaturalist is a virtual museum where one can upload photographs of entities in the natural environment. It caters for all ages and all levels of expertise and proficiency. It is a platform to learn and contribute to the knowledge base of Nature around is. It is a powerful tool and can do many cool things such as:
- Species lists for an area.
- A ‘Place’ for your school, farm, conservancy, town, hiking trail.
- Ways to track your favourite group of organisms and interact with like-minded people, as well as experts from across the globe (penguins, fogs, mushrooms, Ericas).
- It is ideal for bio blitzes.
- It made Cape Town win the global City Nature Challenge amongst more than 150 cities earlier this.
- Projects are useful too: Examples of existing ‘Projects’: Champion trees, Roadkill, Red data species, NEMBA Alien Invasive Plants and many more.
