iNaturalist allows you to identify creatures or plants that you find outside by recording what you see and sharing with a community of individuals on the app. Basically, species knowledge is crowdsourced to help you figure out what you want to know. Another great thing about this app is that every observation you share is integrated into a biodiversity data collection--your seemingly small contribution could help a scientist with their research!
