Similarly, for the southern African cities, the species totals will continue to climb with time, although the observations and observers should be relatively fixed (although some late contributors will change these, and people asked to combine or delete duplicates or split observations will also change some figures).

Congratulations to @alexlansdowne for 492 species!

Αναρτήθηκε από dianastuder 5 μήνες πριν

And congratulations to @linkie too with the same amount of species - 492!
I think the species count is actually more important than obs. Why not mention that too?

Congrats all. Hope you had fun.
Wowzer Ethekwini - defnitely swept along by some energy of a naturalist front!

Thank you for the before, during and after of all the organisers and SANBI staff. Many whoop whoops!

There is some good stuff waiting in the Unknowns. LOTS still waiting for the Western Cape.

Αναρτήθηκε από dianastuder 5 μήνες πριν

Yes. I think that we seriously underestimated two things.

1. People returning from the long weekend having to pack, unpack, get ready for work and school :: that was two day's delay that we did not anticipate. And many people prioritized outstanding uploads over IDs. So some "top" identifiers did not get round to making IDs.
2. Loadshedding. That seriously cut into time for Identifications (& uploads). Not only by enthusiasts, but also by professional staff. - We seriously missed them!

Well: next time we know to plan for these.

Thank you for 'never sleeping during CNC' - someone on the forum commented, imagine if La Paz put the same effort into identifying as Cape Town.
And if they had (your) informative before (how to) and after (stats) journal posts?

Hushhhhh!!!
We still need to plan how to comprehensively beat them!

More marine biology identifiers? Seaweed and sea 'Is That An Animal?' defy me.

They have habitat across altitude, but we have mountain AND sea.

https://newsroom.wcs.org/News-Releases/articleType/ArticleView/articleId/17515/La-Paz-Bolivia-Breaks-Records-in-City-Nature-Challenge-2022.aspx

In retrospect - observers who deliberately went There to record That, need to at least add a note or a comment with the name (when they upload?) - if they don't get around to an actual ID. But loadshedding ... we have solar so I can.
