Together our 62 Australian observers accounted for around 7 % of all observations within Australia over the month of February (at time of writing), while constituting only around 1.1% of all Australian iNaturalists observers active during the month .
This month saw a drop below 100,000 Australian iNaturalist observations for the month, this is the first time since September 2021 for the second time, the number of observations has dropped below 100K observations this may be due to the floods along Australias eastern seaboard and the lift on Covid 19 restrictions. This trend may continue in March as some of Australia's most prolific observers have been restricted to investigating their backyard Biodiversity.
