iNaturalist Species Identifiers

iNaturalist Species Identifiers will be key to the success of the York University BioBlitz happening on September 22, 2017! Your role will be to verify the identifications posted to the iNaturalist project.

This role may be perfect for you if you are a species identification expert in any species group likely to be found on York University’s campus, but cannot make it out for the event as you can identify species online without coming to campus, and it does not have to occur on the date of the event!

You will be required to make an iNaturalist account (FREE!) to sign up for this position and join the “YorkU BioBlitz Sept 22” iNaturalist Project.

If you are new to iNaturalist and identifying observations please check out this help page:

You also do not need to be a member of the York University community for this position!

Species groups that will be uploaded include:

  • Insects
  • Mammals
  • Birds
  • Plants


  • View records uploaded to the “YorkU BioBlitz Sept 22” iNaturalist Project
  • Verify as many records as you can before the end date of the project (to be determined)
  • Have fun!!

If you are interested in volunteering for this position, or any others, please join the YorkU BioBlitz iNaturalist project and begin verifying submissions Friday September 22!

If you have any questions you can email us at
