➽ Join Project Noah Today!

✔ With our website,, we're building an active community where users can view submissions, help identify species, choose their favorite photos, follow their favorite contributors and discuss their encounters. Users can also make submissions directly from the web.

✔ Our ultimate goal is to build the go-to platform for documenting all the world's organisms. By encouraging the mobile masses to document their encounters with nature, we're building powerful force for data collection and an important educational tool for wildlife awareness and preservation. We hope you'll support us by joining Project Noah today.

✔ Noah stands for networked organisms and habitats. Read on to find out how it all works.

➽ The Project Noah app has 3 modes:

✔ Spottings: Grab a photograph of a plant or animal that you find interesting or want to learn more about, select the appropriate category, confirm your location, add some descriptive tags, and submit it. If you need help identifying species, no prob, just select the check box and the community will suggest species IDs

✔ Location-based Field Guide: See what kinds of plants and animals have been spotted near you and learn more about them. Search through a map view, list view, or grid view of most recent spottings all based on your location. You can filter wildlife by categories so you can explore what you’re most interested in.

✔ Field Missions: We work with labs, environmental groups, and various organizations to help them gather important data for their research projects. Missions can range from photographing squirrels or mushrooms to tracking migrating birds or invasive species. Missions allow users to contribute to ongoing research projects, but they can also be for fun and exploration.

Some times I have a little trouble uploading "new spot rings" but other than that it is Great!

Project Noah is the perfect app for nature lovers! This is a great tool to use to record findings and learn more about nature. This app allows you to share your own wildlife pictures and to view postings by users around the world. Along with viewing postings, fellow users can comment on them and help identify unknown species. This is a great way to get children interested in nature since it integrates technology. They will think that it's super cool!

I really like the app so far. I have only had it a couple days and it seems people are very active with assisting in figuring out unknown spottings. A great app overall and I hope the developers take some time to fix a few things. I took photos earlier this afternoon and got responses from the community almost right away. However, I noticed the time is wrong on all my posts. Some say "posted seven days ago" but I have only had the app for just over a day. Deleting photos does not work. When I try to delete an image it goes away temporarily and shows back up when I re enter the spotting. And yes. I click delete, then Save the spotting after deleting the image. Deleted images still return. I tried to view local posts and the app crashed every time. I had to go into iPhone settings and turn on location settings for the app. The app shouldn't crash when I choose location devices, but rather prompt "Turn on location service" from within the app. I would also like the ability to view other users' posts. If someone leaves a comment I can reply. But I would like the ability to tap on their name and see what they have found. Also, when creating a spotting with multiple photos I should be able to choose which image is the main thumbnail. Cropping is not precise either. When selecting the crop area, the app seems to add an extra crop to the bottom. So, cropping is really a trial and error approach instead of the preferred what you see is what you get method.

Thus app is great! I used it on my kids, since we have many insects in our classroom, and they all went home and bought it! It is truly one of the best apps I have. So if you have kids and you want fun try this one. Thanks!
