SA iNaturalists - November 2023 Update







We've Surpassed 600,000 Verifiable Observations!




Sometime in the last few days we reached 600,000 verifiable observations uploaded in South Australia!

Congratulations to all who have contributed to this milestone. These observations from nearly 8,000 people represent over 600,000 separate instances where someone took the time to stop and engage with the natural world, and then took the time to share that encounter with others.

All of these records have been synced with the Atlas of Living Australia and the Global Biodiversity Information Facility, databases aimed at providing anyone, anywhere, open access to data about all types of life on Earth.

The first observations in SA were uploaded around mid-2011 and had only reached 4,500 by the end of 2017. Since then however the rate has increase dramatically. We surpassed 100,000 observations in May 2020. It took 9 years to reach that milestone. It took only 12 months to add the second 100,000, only 10 months to add the third 100,000, only 8 months to add the fourth 100,000, and only 7 months to add the fifth 100,000. Since then we've added another 100,000 in only 5 and a half months, averaging 578 observations every single day!





From November 24th to 27th the community contributed nearly 6,000 observations across South Australia as part of the Great Southern BioBlitz. As a whole over 7,000 people participated in the BioBlitz contributing over 220,000 observations of more than 25,000 species across the southern hemisphere.

SA iNaturalists - June 2023 Update







We've Reached 500,000 Verifiable Observations!




On the 15th of June 2023 we reached 500,000 verifiable observations uploaded in South Australia!

Congratulations to all who have contributed to this milestone. The first observations in SA were uploaded around mid-2011 and had only reached 4,500 by the end of 2017. Since then however the rate has increase dramatically reaching 23,500 by end of 2018, then 66,800 by end of 2019, on to 162,400 by end of 2020, then 282,700 by end of 2021 and finally 424,537 by the end of 2022.

We surpassed 100,000 observations in May 2020. It took 9 years to reach that milestone. It took only 12 months to add the second 100,000, only 10 months to add the third 100,000, and only 8 months to add the fourth 100,000. The last 100,000 took us only 7 months! We are currently recording approximately 350 new observations each day. That's a new observation every 4 minutes, ever hour of every day! Is it possible we could add another 100,000 verifiable observations in the next 6 months?

Alas, the exponential increase in observations cannot continue forever, and has been dropping year by year. 2018 saw a 520% increase in observations, 2019 a 280% increase, 2020 a 240% increase, 2021 a 170% increase, and 2022 a 150% increase.
