Project Noah. You take photos of all the local plants and animals in your area, mark on the map your location, and everyone around the World can view your photos, and Scientists also view the photos to track some plants and animals that might be endangered or invasive to see how the population is doing based on your spottings. It's free to join and fun for all ages! http://www.projectnoah.org/
A fun Website for all you shutterbugs
And once again, those of us who choose to not have the "smartphone" are penalized for having "just" a camera.................too bad, I'd have enjoyed something like this.
Anna, smartphones don't appear to be mandatory according to the FAQs (I'd be out of luck as well). They do have apps that allow you to use Project Noah on smartphones, but a third-party online account seems to be all that is required.
Here is the text I'm referring to:
"You can start by signing in with any of your existing online accounts including Google, Facebook, Twitter, Yahoo!, Windows Live and Aol. If you don't have one of these accounts, we invite you to sign up for one to quickly join the project. Once you've logged in for the first time you'll be presented with your "My Noah" dashboard. Here you can upload, manage and view your spottings and browse spottings submitted by the community in real-time. If you have an iPhone or Android smartphone, we have mobile applications available to help you connect to Project Noah on the go." http://www.projectnoah.org/faq
