So what's it all about?
iSpot is a website that aims to help anyone identify anything in nature. The best place to start is to look at some of the latest observations – you can see what people are observing right now. Anyone can see what's on the site without registering. Go to theand click on the photos for the latest observations, or on the species-group icons just below.
If you register, you can add an observation to the website and suggest an identification yourself or invite others to identify it for you. You can also help others by adding an identification to an existing observation, which you may like to do as your knowledge grows.
Your reputation on the site will grow as people agree with your identifications. You may also like to visit our forums which offer lively debate around observations and other more general topics. In this video Jonathan Silvertown introduces iSpot and how it can help you learn about wildlife.
