Together our 62 Australian observers accounted for substantial contributions to the overall records made all contributing;
April 8.9 % of the 114,327 observations recorded in Australia
May 6.2 % of the 100,315 observations recorded in Australia
June 6.3 % of the 79,476 observations recorded in Australia

months around 6.7 % of all observations within Australia over the month of February (at the time of writing) while constituting only just over 1% of all Australian iNaturalists observers active during each month.
Over the three months, the number of observations exceeded 100,000 Australian iNaturalist observations, twice in both April and May but fell away in June to just below 80,000 possibly due to the cooler weather experienced across southern Australia. It is fantastic to see so many observations being made.

As we come into Orchid season in southern Australia and I encourage you all to level up with Wild Orchid Watch, the Australian citizen science project that has its own app that collects extra data, that feeds into inaturalist.
You can install the Wild Orchid Watch (WOW) app on your mobile device, simply by typing in your internet browser: app.wildorchidwatch.org (or select the button below) and follow the prompts. The WOW app is a progressive web app, so it sits on the web, not in the app store, but looks just like a regular app once installed.
