Iran - iNaturalist World Tour

We're in Iran for the 124th stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. The top observer is @apbbani, an herpetologist, based around the capital of Tehran. You can read more about @apbbani in this Observation of the Week post about a Lorestan Newt he spotted. Other top observers are also clustered around Tehran such as @shahrzadasa, @shauheen, @mahdiraeisi, and @houman_drd. @marylauredelaharpe's observations are clustered to the south of Tehran, @sghiaseddin to the east, and @kiarashvqr to the west in the town of Rasht. Much further south @jiroiguchi and @paulschrijvershof have clusters of observations. Don't miss this Observation of the Week post about the bizzare Spider-tailed Horned Viper seen by @matthieuberroneau in Iran.

Observations ticked up in 2017. The highest peak was in July of 2017 driven mostly by @apbbani.

@sammyboy2059 is the top identifier and leads in birds and mammals. @cliygh-and-mia leads in herps and fish. @kastani leads in plants. Other top identifiers include @rajibmaulick and @khaledayyach

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