Data is harvested from iNaturalist Australia to ALA daily. After processing, it is refreshed once per week.


Observations will come across to the ALA if they are:

  • Shareable under a Creative Commons license
  • In Australia
  • Verifiable observations - those which are marked Needs ID or Research Grade


If an iNaturalist observation is updated with a new identification, image, or a changed location, the record in ALA will be updated as part of the regular data harvest.


If records are removed from iNaturalist, they will be removed from ALA.
