On these iNaturalist project leaderboards

.
I decided to make a list of the projects (21 of them) in which I am currently on the top of both of the project leaderboards. In this list, the two numbers following the name of the project are the number of observations I have made, and the number of species I have observed, as of today.

Some items on this list will not change as time passes, because the project is now closed, but some are ongoing, and therefore will change.

.

Great work!

Kind of you to say so!

Posted by susanhewitt 3 months ago (Flag)

So now I have 100 species in the "Moths of New York County" project. That made me happy.
