Central Texas Biodiversity Survey

There are many ways in which you can help the Central Texas Biodiversity Survey. A few requests are listed below. 1: Please provide pictures of any species you find to be living in the Central Texas area, along with the location (as accurate as can be provided) of where this species was encountered. All plants, fungi, and animals (excluding, please, domesticated animals) are welcome. *Note*: You do not have to know information about the species, or be able to identify it to upload a photo. When uploading a photo, please make sure that the organism of interest can be clearly discerned in the photo. If there is doubt, please provide commentary pointing out what you are submitting. 2: Review submissions to the mission posted by others, and provide any information you can find which may be missing from the entry. Researching and suggesting species identification, with appropriate links is strongly encouraged to help build a stronger knowledge base for the project. 3: Spread the word and be active in the community. Leave comments here on the Project Noah community site (and by all means, participate in other missions). Share your entries and other favorites on Facebook and Twitter. Encourage others to participate, and organize group events for the project. Group nature walks and habitat clean up projects are great times to build stronger bonds between people, and between people and nature -- they are also a good time to snap photos.

The goal of the Central Texas Biodiversity Survey is to take as rich an inventory of the various species inhabiting the Central Texas area as can be made possible by community effort. Our hope is to build stronger ties between people and the world around us.
