Vultures, iguanas, and rabbits, oh my!

If you've created a profile on, you should have received an email yesterday highlighting vultures, iguanas, rabbits, and how citizen science biodiversity observations tell us about our changing world. Click to see it here.

We have a great collection of vulture photos for International Vulture Awareness Day on Saturday, September 5. We're taking advantage of days like this to encourage new observations and perhaps inspire you to dig through your existing photos. It looks like it's working, so thank you!

If you want to receive emails directly from National Geographic's Great Nature Project in the future, use your iNaturalist account to log in here and tell us a little more about yourself.

For those of you in the United States, I hope you get outside to enjoy Labor Day weekend! If you're traveling, download our vacation biodiversity checklist to take along.

P.S. If you don't understand the reference in the title, watch this.

Awesome! I'm going to keep a special eye open for vultures tomorrow. Happy Vulture Awareness day, Carrie! :)

I am glad to hear this- I have been observing a lot of vultures in the sky and around us. Some look so graceful gliding cross the sky with their massive wing spans. Yesterday ( 9/4/15), I counted 15 vultures circling overhead in the sky close to our home and pointed it out to my 16 year old son. Also, there are lots of crows around here.
Have a great weekend everyone!
