Professionally, I'm a GIS analyst for NatureServe (https://www.natureserve.org/), an amazing conservation organization that manages some of the finest biodiversity data that exists for rare and at-risk species in the Western Hemisphere, but I don't get to observe many of those kinds of species first-hand very often. I love iNaturalist as a way to learn about and be directly engaged with the biodiversity in my own backyard, even for things that are common (for now), and contribute some data that may be useful now or into the future for understanding and predicting trends around species distributions and dependencies on our landscape of Earth. And maybe share a nice photograph or two with you along the way...

“The worst thing that will probably happen -in fact is already well underway -is not energy depletion, economic collapse, conventional war, or the expansion of totalitarian governments. As terrible as these catastrophes would be for us, they can be repaired in a few generations. The one process now going on that will take millions of years to correct is loss of genetic and species diversity by the destruction of natural habitats. This is the folly our descendants are least likely to forgive us.”—E.0. Wilson
