GSBiogroup surpasses 100, 000 observations

As a group, we have been collecting observations on iNaturalist for a long time. However, at the start of the year back at the end of January, we set up this project to collect observations by the organisers of our southern spring bio blitz the Great Southern Bioblitz
Great Southern Bioblitz

It is a wonderful thing that this project has grown record over 100,000 observations from across our network, with many observations in Australia, Southern Africa, South America and the Pacific.

The most active user on the project is David Torres (AKA @dawicho) from the amazing Pichincha region of Ecuador, it looks like the Quito & Pichincha area will have an advantage in the 2021 Great Southern Bioblitz. I have included some of the great observations by @dawicho below.

Nick Lambert (@nicklambert) from Australia has observed the most species within the same period, observing 1, 883 (2,278) species within the same period, an amazing effort. Nicks most observed species within this period was Angled Australian Barkhopper Paraselina brunneri pictured below observed in Korora NSW, Australia
