About Places

The world is full of interesting places, each filled with weird and wonderful life forms. Some are on the other side of the world, while others are just down the street!

iNaturalist Australia Places are a way to record what lives where. If you're looking for a particular species, you'll know where to search. Each place has a check list to record all the species that occur there, so they can also be useful for looking up things you've found at particular spots.

Species from around the world

Each place page displays all the species iNaturalist Australia knows about from that place, including information about their abundance, conservation status, and who was first to observe that species from that place on iNaturalist Australia. You can filter the species by taxonomic group, color, conservation status, or plain old search.
