"iSpot is a citizen science project run by The Open University (OU) that was developed to help anyone learn about and engage with nature while sharing and building their wildlife identification skills. Supported by a diverse and growing online community of nature enthusiasts, iSpot has grown into a database of over 1.5 million photos posted with hundreds of thousands observations of species from a wide range of groups including amphibians and reptiles; birds; fungi and lichens; fish; invertebrates; mammals plants and other organisms. iSpot is free and easy to use: share your interest with a friendly community, look at the latest spots, take photos of wildlife, add your own observations, join in discussions and get help identifying what you have seen."
"iSpot is a website aimed at helping anyone identify anything in nature. People upload their observations of wildlife, help each other identify it, and share and discuss what they've seen. A good place to start is to look at some of the latest observations - you can see what people are observing right now. Anyone can see what's on the site without registering - just go back to the home page, and click on the photos for the latest observations."
