Iraq - iNaturalist World Tour

We end week 19 of the iNaturalist World Tour in Iraq. Again, apologies for the continued abbreviated World Tour posts. The top observer in Iraq by a very large lead is @zayn_alnajm with observations clustered around Basrah. Seven of the top 10 observers appear to be residents of Iraq including @sarchia, @a_pine_line (an environmental organization based in Erbil, Iraqi Kurdistan), @bahrouz (a professor in molecular microbiology at University of Sulaimani), @hanaraza (a wildlife conservationist in Kurdistan, Iraq), @kamel3 (a biologist), and @azhin. @gregpc has from 2008 near the Mosul Airport. @jonathan's frog observation made while stationed in Iraq was one of the first stories from iNaturalist picked up by the media back in 2011. @matt-ratcliffe appears to be in Iraq at the moment posting observations as recently as yesterday.

The number of observations per month peaked in 2018, particularly in Feburary when @zayn_alnajm was most active.

The top identifiers are @cliygh-and-mia, @zayn_alnajm, @sammyboy2059, @borisb, and @wongun

What can we do to get more people in Iraq using iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below.

@zayn_alnajm @sarchia @a_pine_line @bahrouz @hanaraza @cliygh-and-mia @sammyboy2059 @borisb @wongun @kamel3

We’ll be back tomorrow in Mongolia!

The link on the word "Iraq" in the first line is to which appears to be the link for Reunion island. Iraq is apparently 8206.
