Calling All Hong Kong iNaturalistas!

Hi Everyone!

I have tagged you as you are the top 220 identifiers for the Hong Kong territory....and we need your help!

Between 4 - 10 November, students from over 25 schools in Hong Kong will be making observations of nature around their school campuses on iNaturalist and they will need your help to offer identifications. They are encouraged to make 1st level IDs (i.e. Bird, Plant, Butterfly, etc) and I have made it clear that they are NOT to take pictures of indoor or outdoor potted plants.

The main objectives for this project is
1) To offer a different opportunity for teachers to teach about urban ecology and classification.
2) To foster a sense of biodiversity stewardship in their neighbourhoods through monitoring.
3) To nurture student's awareness, engagement and enthusiasm for Hong Kong's amazing urban biodiversity.
4) To help them contribute to our growing urban biodiversity database.

There may inevitably be pictures of poor quality (and maybe even the odd selfie!!!) yet, if you wish to leave a comment for them, please be constructive and positive.

Please join the Hong Kong Inter-School City Nature Challenge 2019 project and help our students! The more they know, they will care more.

Thankyou!
Shaun
