There are two ways to add sightings to the ALA; through iNaturalist Australia and directly into the ALA using the Record a Sighting function.
1. How to submit an observation with iNaturalist
2. How to Record a Sighting directly through the ALA's Record a Sighting function
Begin at the Atlas of Living Australia homepage. Select Contribute, then choose Record a sighting
You can also get to the Record a Sighting page from the individual species overview page.
You need to enter all the details of your sighting. This includes specific details of where and when you saw the species and photographs if you have them.
You can zoom very close in on the map to show exactly where the sighting was, or the location information can come from the image.
There is space for any additional notes if required. Once you have finished entering all of the details, click on Submit.
Once you have submitted your sighting, it will appear in your list of sightings.
To find this list, go to View your timeline of sightings recorded through the Atlas under My profile.
