Senegal - iNaturalist World Tour

We're in Senegal for the 130th stop on the iNaturalist World Tour. Again, apologies for the continued abbreviated World Tour posts. Senegal is surrounded by Mauritania to the north, Mali to the east, Guinea to the southeast, and Guinea-Bissau to the southwest. As a former French colony, Senegal surrounds the Gambia which was British and buffers the Gambia river.

Top observers in the Saint-Louis Region are @rangersara, who was a peace corp volunteer, @liesvanrompaey, and @jujurenoult. Top observer @mattiamenchetti has observations clustered near the Thiès and Dakar regions. North of the Gambia, top observers @marcellc, @antarduengo and @tierraiberica are clustered in the Sine-Saloum region while south of the Gambia, in the region formerly known as Casamance, @marcorastell are top observers. Further inland, @tsuchan and @gabindiaye are top observers.

The number of observations per month ticked up a bit in 2017. There was a peak in September 2019 driven by @mattiamenchetti and @tsuchan.

The top three identifiers are the usual Africa big 3 identifiers: @jakob, @johnnybirder, and @marcoschmidtffm. Other top identifiers include @greenline and @rajibmaulick.

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