I hope you like the site as much we do; there are many features you can explore:
I invite you to go to where you will find the purpose and “rules” of Project Noah. In particular the request that you add a reference to "complete" your spotting.
There is a blog where we post articles from spotters with special insight into different organisms.
There are also the chats for help with identification, and to comment on your own and others’ spottings.
Look at the global and local missions to put your spottings into:
Enjoy yourself here, see you around!
