The BC Parks iNaturalist Project: Using Community Science to Inform Conservation

NATURAL HISTORY NIGHT The BC Parks iNaturalist Project: Using Community Science to Inform Conservation iNaturalist is the largest community science platform in the world, and it’s growing exponentially. John Reynolds and Brian Starzomski will explore the ways in which community science projects such as iNaturalist can be used to learn about biodiversity, emphasizing its use in documenting species in BC’s provincial park system. They will also consider how iNaturalist and other community science platforms are informing conservation assessments, with an emphasis on Canadian species at risk.
