The more curious a child is, the more they learn. To encourage curiosity, help your child discover the world around them by observing, recording, and sharing their natural environments with others. One platform for doing this is through iNaturalist.

iNaturalist is a citizen science project and online social network of naturalists, citizen scientists, and biologists built on the concept of mapping and sharing observations of biodiversity across the globe. iNaturalist may be accessed via its website or from its mobile applications.
