Southern Africa últimas observaciones
Ayudar a confirmar las observaciones globales
Welcome to iSpot southern Africa. Your one-stop shop for Biodiversity on the subcontinent. Please feel free to use the site for any interesting observation you may have, to document something, to obtain an ID - by adding an observation, by looking around, or more formally by using the browser (the "surfer") or the dictionary links. Please also help others by making an ID if you know something that someone else needs an ID for.
The second carousel above is global and not very useful. In order to try and re-enervate our local users to help with getting identifications made, we have created a number of projects that can achieve this.
