Well done! This is a great example of citizen science.

Many of the findings are pointed out to me by members. You are the people who deserve all the credit! Thank you.

Great tally Mark and an excellent reminder of how far we've gotten with the help of the community.

@harryrosenthal The recent discoveries table is now done as an image. I used to do it as a table in html with links. That too ages to do, which is why there hasn't been an impacts journal entry for a while. Presenting this information as an image means that I can more regularly post this kind of information.

Hi Mark. You sent me an invite for Australasian Fishes and I accepted. But I joined pretty recently and I can't post my observation on the project. Just send how please.

Hi @faunadragon27 This video is a little bit old but it will guide you through the process. Thanks for joining the Australasian Fishes community. :) Feel free to contact me again if you have any other questions.
