    Default ISpot

    ISpot is a valuable source of information. As of May 2015 it passed 500,000 wildlife observations.

    I encourage as many people as possible to make use of it.

    It not only helps to identify all that is nature, but also, if you sign up (free) you can create projects of places of interest and get an idea before you leave as to what you could see.
    So the next trip you plan, besides studying maps and routes, study ISpot to plan as well.

    And maybe, add your own observations to increase the database and distribution lists.

    Who knows, you may be one of the lucky people to discover a new species. Its been done quite recently, and many more waiting to be found.

    It's a brilliant site - have had all sorts of things identified by the experts on it, with the exception of one that no-one seems to know about.

    ISpot is the best, it was invaluable to my honours project. I feel bad for not posting more observations.

    @4x4 4 fun:I like that I support ISpot signature, mind if I steal it for my profile too?

    Default ISpot to INaturalist

    The bulk of the information is been transferred from ISpot to INaturalist.
    SANBI and many of the experts are using and referring to INat.

    For quicker answers I recommend INaturalist.

    Enjoy the site as well by using it to plan what you may see in the National Parks, or along the roadside.
