Uruguay - iNaturalist World Tour

Uruguay is the 108th stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. The top observer, @santiagomailhos, has observations are throughout Uruguay but most are clustered south of the city of Paysandú on the banks of Uruguay River, which forms the border with Argentina as are @cmbiancardi's observations. @pablobaldu has observations clustered near the capital of Montevideo and along this southeastern coast of the country. Many other top observers also have their observations clustered here such as @mirmeleon, a student at Facultad de Ciencias (Universidad de la República) in Montevideo, @leo_lagos, editor of the daily science section of Uruguay's newspaper, @phviny, @liuid, and @ori86. @liuid is doing a PhD studying bats at the University of La Plata (Argentina) and is currently based in southern Brazil. @joaco5 has observations clustered along border with Brazil near the city of Rivera. @roget, associated with Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina, has more observations across the Rio de La Plata in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

The graph of observations per month has been ramping up in 2019. Peaks in April 2019 and August 2019 were mostly driven by @santiagomailhos and @pablobaldu respectively.

The top identifier is @rafatosi, a bird oriented Uruguayan biologist, who also leads in bird, mammal, and herp IDs. Top observer @mirmeleon is another local top identifier and leads in 'other animals'. Most of the other top identifiers are from nearby Argentina including @lrubio7 (who leads in insects & arachnids), @nicoolejnik (who leads in mollusks and fish), and @r-a-p.

What can we do to get more people in Uruguay using iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread.

Noticed that it said: Uraguay - iNaturalist World Tour. That should be Uruguay.

@loarie , can you check the spelling of the country on the title, please?

Yes, it should be "Uruguay." I will be making another visit to Uruguay next month and hope to do a little iNaturalist evangelization when I am down there....

Thank you @loarie for your job at iNaturalist, giving us the opportunity of shearing our observations and to collaborate with the cientific world.
We'll appreciate if you can fix the mistake at the title of this post and the breadcrumb trail, correcting the name of the country.
