Woo-hoo! 100,000 observations and counting

It's time to give yourselves a pat on the back. The Australasian Fishes Project recently cracked 100,000 observations! That's incredible. What's more, the milestone was crossed on 24 November and since then nearly 2000 observations have been added. You guys are amazing. Thank you! :)
@joanna_chen, photographed above wearing her favourite pink mask, uploaded the lucky 100,000th observation - a Wobbegong. Joanna stated that, "The [photo of the] wobbie was captured at Split Solitary Island on a NSW east coast dive trip. It happened to be perched right on the corals." Congratulations Joanna and thank you for your ongoing contributions.
And speaking of contributions, you may be interested in the graphs below, which track the rise in the numbers of observations, species and project members.
It took four years to reach this milestone. Somehow, I can't see it taking another 4 to reach 200,000. :) Thanks again fish-fans!
