Terms & Rules

The Ohio Biological Survey (OBS) encourages responsible use of the iNaturalist platform. Users are reminded that the pursuit of endangered species, whether it results in the capture of an animal or not, is unlawful without a permit from the Ohio Division of Wildlife (ORC 1501:31-23-01).Please consider the following rules of etiquette when you are in the field (thanks to Greg Lipps):

  • don’t pursue listed species
  • don’t disturb research sites or equipment
  • leave the habitat as you found it
  • do not trespass
  • communicate with land owners and managers
  • don’t disclose sensitive location information
  • be a model for ethical behavior
  • appreciate and respect our native flora and fauna.

Please note that if you would like to obscure the location of a particular sighting you may select “Private” under the option for “Change Geoprivacy.” Private locations will not be visible on the map but will still be visible to OBS and can be used for our data collection purposes. Thanks for joining our project. We hope you have a great time using the site and observing wildlife. We appreciate your help collecting distribution information on the plants and animals of Ohio.
