Sometimes we get some media coverage! Here are some notable examples:
iNat co-founder Ken-ichi Ueda shares how to use iNaturalist to record and share the spring wildflower bloom alongside a panel of fellow wildlife-enthusiasts.
Not quite "press", but still kind of amusing, and not a bad write-up! Also brings to mind John Muir Laws's thoughts on love and nature.
This story featuring iNaturalist by KERA in Texas got picked up by NPR for national broadcast on All Tech Considered.
Describes a snail posted to iNat from Vietnam that hadn't been seen in over 100 years.
Story about a recent paper on technology for conservation that covers iNaturalist
Nice story on iNat reaching 1,000,000 observations and launching improved maps.
Pimm et al. assess the current rate of extinction compared with a hypothetical background rate. They cite iNaturalist as an important tool in helping scientists fill the gaps in our knowledge of where species currently persist.
SF Chronicle coverage of an iNat-powered bioblitz that we helped organize in collaboration with Nerds for Nature, Wild Oakland, and numerous other partners. Nerds for Nature has conducted numerous bioblitzes like this, and they're both tons of fun and a great model for using iNat to engage people with nature while collecting potentially useful data.
