iNaturalist

Plant and animal identification app – all ages

Help document and celebrate the biodiversity of BC Parks, from salmon to sasquatches, if it’s in a park we would love to know about it! When you visit BC's provincial parks and protected areas, collect photographic observation of plants, animals, other organisms and natural features, and upload them to the iNaturalist website or app. These observations help researchers develop a deeper understanding of what parks are protecting and can inform management decisions to sustain these protected areas for generations to come.
