Közösen a Természetért Foundation is the maintainer of the website https://www.izeltlabuak.hu/ 

On this platform users can record their arthropod observations with photos, geolocation and other related details.

Professionals contribute in determination of recorded arthropods.

The platform can be considered as a monitoring service. All records are open access and can be used for any scientific and educational purposes.

Distribution maps of species are created automatically based on user records. These maps can be used for detecting changes in invasive species distribution and help us know more about distribution of all arthropod species in the country.

These records are valuable resources for experts to make scientific publications.


Our goal is to protect our natural values, create a harmonic relationship between wildlife and human, explore and celebrate the beauty of biodiversity and promote the citizen science through monitoring.
