iNaturalist is an online community that allows each of us to connect and share nature observations, from rare species to the most common. These observations help guide a variety of conservation, research, and mitigation initiatives. The Georgian Bay Biosphere Reserve based in Parry Sound would like you to join with them in this citizen science project. www.inaturalist.ca/projects/georgian-bay-biosphere.
It’s easy to start: Sign up at iNaturalist.ca. Download the iNaturalist app on your phone. Search “Projects” and join “Georgian Bay Biosphere”.
Now you are ready to record your sightings: birds, turtles, insects, mammals, etc. – all data received is important to help science and to protect biodiversity in our precious and unique environment.
