Welcome to the "South Australian iNaturalists" collection project

Welcome to the "South Australian iNaturalists" collection project.

This collection project has been created to bring together all the active iNat users from South Australia. As with all collection projects anyone can join, however this project will only collect observations from those users:

Who reside within South Australia (or have in the past)
Have uploaded at least 20 observations in South Australia
Who wish to join the project and have their observations included

Active Local Users
As is typical of online platforms, the number of active users is only a small fraction of the total. Of the 1058 users who have uploaded an observation in South Australia only 140 have uploaded more than 20 observations. Of these, only 89 have been active in the last month and a rough estimate suggests around half of these are visitors to SA.

What's included
As the focus of this project is to create a place for active local SA users, there are no taxa restrictions. All lifeforms are included.
As many organisms cannot be IDed to species from photos alone, observations at both Research Grade and Needs ID are included.
The project will only include observations from members that were recorded in SA
