Supporters

We collaborate with a number of different local and international supporters and partners to share data, recruit new naturalists, and generally help get people outside and sharing cool information.

California Academy of Sciences

As a department at the Academy, we work closely with many groups here to help connect people to this vibrant and amazing institution.

DataPipe

DataPipe is a cloud infrastructure service. They've generously donated some of their hardware to iNaturalist that has been put to use for everything ranging from backups to staging machines to improving our search engine and mapping capabilities.

Global Biodiversity Informatics Facility (GBIF)

GBIF is a world-renowned database of biodiversity collections and occurrence data. They compile data from museums all around the world, providing a centralized resource where scientists and resource managers can access millions of records. iNat feeds all its licensed, research-grade observations into GBIF, thereby making this data available to scientists everywhere.

International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN)

The IUCN sets conservation priorities on a global scale. We provide tools for them to help assess species on their Red List, as well as providing primary occurrence data to help them develop these assessments and update their range maps.

Encyclopedia of Life (EOL)

Based on a vision by the preeminent ecologist Ed Wilson, EOL provides curated information about all life on Earth. We've worked closely with EOL in developing our projects and guides functionality, and we continue to provide integration between EOL collections and iNat projects and guides, as well as supplying them with photos from iNaturalist's licensed, research-grade observations.

Calflora

Calflora is a the premier repository of botanical occurrence and checklist data in California. We share all our research-grade observations of plants in California with them, and they provide us with comprehensive checklists of California plants and conservations statuses.

Atlas of Living Australia (ALA)

ALA aggregates information about Australian biodiversity from a diverse array of sources, including iNaturalist. You can check out our contributions to this amazing site by viewing our data resource page on ALA.

La Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología

La Fundación Española para la Ciencia y la Tecnología has supported Spanish partners who have improved the iNaturalist open source software.

CREAF

CREAF is a public research center in Catalonia (Spain) dedicated to terrestrial ecology, producing knowledge and methodologies for conservation, management, and adaptation of the environment to global change. CREAF has translated the iNaturalist patform and apps to Catalan, Spanish, Basque and Galician, and has also collaborated improving the open source software.

National Geographic's Great Nature Project

Since 1888, National Geographic has been inspiring people to care about the planet. When National Geographic launched the Great Nature Project in 2013, iNaturalist was one of many platforms to encourage people to get outside, explore nature, and share photos of biodiversity. In 2014, the Great Nature Project became a new entryway to the iNaturalist community where users can add observations, IDs, and comments. They have also supported improvements to the iOS app.

Comisión Nacional para el Conocimiento y Uso de la Biodiversidad (CONABIO)

CONABIO is the founding partner in the iNatwork, a growing number of customized, branded entryways into the central iNaturalist community. They've done an amazing job bringing Mexican naturalists into the fold through NaturaLista, and help us show that it's only (some) humans who care about the US / Mexico border.
