Become a real life iNaturalist by exploring the biodiversity of your school grounds and sharing the information with people from all around the world, just like a professional naturalist would.

A wonderfully practical lesson which teaches pupils how to use iNaturalist, a social network for sharing biodiversity information to help each other learn about nature. The primary goal is to connect people to nature, and the secondary goal is to generate scientifically valuable biodiversity data from these encounters. iNaturalist helps you identify plants and animals with visually similar suggestions. Developed for Bristol Natural History Consortium to celebrate the City Nature Challenge taking place annually, over 60 cities compete globally to see who can make the most observations of nature, find the most species and engage the most people.
