Ever wondered which species you haven't yet seen? You can find this in your Dynamic Life List. On the web version of iNat, head to your Profile Page and select Lists. Here you'll find your automatically updated Dynamic Life List. On the right side of the screen you can select Unobserved Species. Below this you can Filter By Place. You can type in most local places including conservation parks, council areas or the whole state. Here are a few examples from my Dynamic Life List: Species I've not observed in Belair National Park, and Birds I've not seen across all of SA.
