City Nature challenge 2019, thanks everyone!

Thank you to everyone who made observations during the City Nature Challenge. New York City did very well, coming in 12th in the world. That is remarkable considering we were the highest-ranked city to be this far north, and therefore still very much in spring.

We also had the hardest-working observers, who averaged the most number of observations per person of any city in the top 12.

We made nearly 4000 more observations than we did during last years event, even though we actually had fewer observers than last year.

We found 146 species that had never previously been recorded anywhere on iNaturalist.

For the 14 cities that are in our size category, we were #1 in terms of number of observations and number of species, ahead of Bristol and Bath City Region, Liverpool City region, Calgary and Barcelona.

So thanks again to everyone!
