Bhutan - iNaturalist World Tour

We end Week 10 of the iNaturalist World Tour in Bhutan! The top observer, @gancw1, is based in Singapore but has observations from throughout Bhutan. @jatishwor is a Phd candidate at the Czech Academy of Sciences in the Czech Republic studying butterflies and moths of northeast India and Bhutan. His observations are clustered in the Tsirang District along with @seangyeal, @antshrike69 and others. @phuentsho is a ranger Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park in central Bhutan. Visitors @markuslilje and @briancriter have observations from across the country. @tandinniznat's observations are clustered near Trashigang to the east. There is a cluster of observers such as @cub_agthukten and @cubact_yangki near COMO Uma Paro and another such as @cupsc_sonam near COMO Uma Punakha. A third cluster of observers such as @jcavicch and @cpatton2 near the Ugyen Wangchuck Institute for Conservation and Environmental Research.

The number of observations per month has been hovering around 250. There was a spike in April of this year because of the COMO Uma Paro and COMO Uma Punakha events mentioned above as part of the COMO Hotels and Resorts event organized by @chra_batfish and @cupag_kelley.

@sethmiller, based in Bangladesh, is the top identifier. @juhakinnunen, based in Finland, leads in insect identifications. Insects are the top observation category in Bhutan due to an interest in moths among many of the top observers. @phuentsho is not just a top observer, but is a top identifier and leads in the plant and bird categories. @anilamanalil and @rajibmaulick, based in India, are also top identifiers.

What can we do to get more people in Bhutan involved in iNaturalist? Please share your thoughts below or on this forum thread

@gancw1 @jatishwor @phuentsho @antshrike69 @seangyeal @markuslilje @sethmiller @juhakinnunen @anilamanalil @rajibmaulick

We’ll be back tomorrow in Armenia!
