A fresh take on the region's salty affairs 

APNEP joins iNaturalist

By Marie English, Education and Outreach Assistant, Americorps Member

Now that spring is finally here and talk around the water cooler is abuzz with plans for outdoor adventures and exploration, APNEP is excited to announce the launching of its first iNaturalist (iNat) project. iNat is a website and optional application used to capture and record observations or species sightings in nature. The goal of APNEP’s project page is to collect observations of plants and animals found in the Albemarle-Pamlico Estuarine Region. APNEP needs the involvement of citizen scientists on iNat to make this project successful. When iNat members share their perfectly-captured nature photos, they are helping to record N.C.’s natural resources and fill gaps in species data collection.

What is iNaturalist?

Anyone can become a naturalist with iNat! With an easy-to-use website and smartphone app, iNaturalist has become one of the most advanced forms of citizen science. It brings together all types of nature enthusiasts including scientists, hikers, photographers, birders, kayakers, fishermen, students, and many more. iNat is a place where users can record what they see in nature, meet other nature lovers, and learn about the natural world. Users record the “when", “what”, and “where” of the species they encounter while exploring the natural world. If enough people record their observations, it would be akin to a living record of life on Earth that scientists and land managers could use to monitor changes in biodiversity over time.
