Hello Shah! We appreciate all the beautiful images you have contributed to Project Noah so far, and we would like to feature some of them. But for this we need a minimum of two things:
- Please pay attenttion to the date of spotting. Most of your spottings have identical spotting and submission dates, sometimes from multiple locations in a day. The date of spotting must be the date when the photograph was taken.
- We need the Habitat field to be filled in, with details on the actual habitat where the image as taken.
We also appreciate any information you have specific to your encounters, as opposed to generic information.
Our FAQ page tells you more about our rules and guidelines:
We hope you can edit your spottings accordingly.
Many thanks in advance!
