S2E7 — How iNaturalist is Unlocking the World's Biodiversity, One Photo at a Time with Alison Young of City Nature Challenge

October 13, 2021

I speak with Alison Young on how iNaturalist is getting people outdoors and advancing biodiversity research worldwide.

This week, I am joined by Alison Young, co-director of the Center for Biodiversity and Community Science at the California Academy of Sciences, to discuss why she co-founded the City Nature Challenge, how iNaturalist can help people find and document plants and wildlife in cities across the globe, and why technology can be an aid, rather than a distraction, to get people outdoors and provide the biodiversity data desperately needed by decision-makers.
