iNaturalist is a community science effort in which participants share observations of living organisms that they encounter and document with photographic evidence, location, and date. The community works together reviewing these images to identify these observations to species. This collection represents the licensed images accompanying iNaturalist observations.
Images are posted in real time, and we are currently copying over images from existing observations. Metadata is updated monthly. More information on the metadata can be found in the documentation
