iNaturalist is a joint initiative of the California Academy of Sciences and the National Geographic Society.  The focus of iNaturalist is more broad than Frog Watch or Bumble Bee Watch, and looks more broadly at biodiversity.  The information uploaded, like the other citizen science projects, is shared for use in numerous research projects.  Learn more by clicking here
