Milestone: 1,500 Contributors in South Australia


We have reached the milestone of 1,500 users contributing observations in South Australia, nearly 500 of whom contributed observations to SA for the first time in the last 12 months.

To date, these 1,500 contributors (actually 1,509 already) have uploaded 77,551 observations covering 5,254 species.

The highest number of contributors in a given month was 159 in October 2019, which was also the month we achieved the highest number of observations and new species added. Given the fast approaching City Nature Challenge I expect all of these records to be easily broken.

Congratulations to all who have contributed. Each and every observation has value, not only in conservation and research efforts, but in the increased understanding and appreciation for nature we gain with each.


A few more stats:
  • Average observations per user: 51
  • Users with 0 to 10 observations: 1145 (76.28%)
  • Users with 11 to 100 observations: 247 (18.25%)
  • Users with 101 to 1,000 observations: 70 (4.66%)
  • Users with 1,001 to 10,000 observations 11 (0.73%)
  • Users with 10,001 to 100,000 observations: 1 (0.07%)

Wow. 1,509 says a lot about our interest in nature. It also says a lot about how good a platform iNaturalist is.

Well, it seems we passed 1,500 observers in SA a while ago! An issue with app uploads and time zones caused a few new users observations to be missing dates, resulting in them being labelled as Casual and not displaying in the Explore page totals. This seems to have masked the true number of observers. This has now been fixed. So we are actually up to 1,654 observers in SA and have probably broken the records above. I'll update the numbers with the next month update.
