I'm a curious generalist and amateur enthusiast who finds fascination in everything around me. Whether it's flora, fauna, or anything in between, I'm intrigued by it all.

For me, using iNaturalist isn't just a pastime, it's a hobby. It motivates me to see the intricacies of individual specimens rather than merely appreciating the broader landscape. The more I observe and learn, the more I find myself eager to add new observations and expand my knowledge.

Over the past four years, I've had the privilege of organizing events like the Garden Route City Nature Challenge and various Great Southern BioBlitz events. It's been a rewarding experience connecting with nature lovers and contributing to our understanding of the natural world.
I also run the Garden Route iNaturalist Facebook page to keep the local community informed

I want to extend a thank you to everyone who takes the time to assist me in identifying observations and offering guidance through comments. Your input is invaluable and greatly appreciated!

Feel free to use my observations for your training, educational, or research purposes. Just a friendly request: if you do use them, please share how they've contributed to your work on the observation and, if possible, provide a link if your work is published online. Knowing that my contributions have made a difference is rewarding.

I must emphasize that my observations are meant strictly for non-profit and lawful purposes. We must maintain a spirit of positivity and ethical conduct in our exploration and learning endeavours together.
