What is iNaturalist?

A press play icon

iNaturalist is an easy-to-use database that records worldwide biodiversity. iNaturalist users worldwide upload photos of wild living things to the site that can be used as scientific data. NHMU uses the site to study the spread of introduced species, learn more about biodiversity in Utah, and to have fun taking pictures outside!
