What is it?
NatureLynx is a brand-new, citizen science tool currently in production by the ABMI. Available on mobile and desktop, NatureLynx acts as a central database for publicly-generated biodiversity data from Alberta, and supports sharing of that data through its mapping platform and other functions. Users upload biodiversity sightings, have their data verified by experts, and participate in "Missions" to learn about the natural world and participate in biodiversity-related research.
NatureLynx is also an outreach platform for existing citizen science initiatives, naturalist groups, and other not-for-profits, fostering increased engagement and supporting collaboration around everything biodiversity.
Added crowd sourced verification feature
Ratings and Reviews
Great app, needs more species of plants
I really enjoy this app, not only because it’s developed locally but has high potential to become even better to all kinds of users. The NatureLynx does a great job at laying out the user interface but I found to be lacking in variety of plant species. I have family that wanted to use the app to identify dangerous plants to avoid while hiking before the hike.
Other than that, I would highly recommend the app to anyone who wants to learn more about the species around them outdoors.
