Onward and upward!

Budawang Coast Atlas of Life continues to grow at a steady pace. We have just clicked over 60,000 observations and 5320 species. 1700 people made these observations. In terms of species, leading the way is insects with 1622 species, then plants with 1670 species. Then comes ray-finned fishes with 376 species and birds with 306 species. Fungi makes a strong showing with 270 species and molluscs number 78 species.

We consistently hover around 30% of observations being unidentified. So, if you or someone you know is an expert in a particular taxon here lies a terrific opportunity to have some fun and make a valuable contribution to science. Thomas Mesaglio recently ran training on tips for setting yourself up as an identifying. See our May 20 journal entry for a link to the recording. It's well worth an hour. Thomas never fails to inspire.
