Good News I think is that there are quite a few members of the southern African community who appear to be on-line. And I see that there also appear to be quite a few newcomers.
Maybe some of the UK members could take a look at these observations (not that many) and possibly post an encouraging comment or a generic ID so that these folk will not think that iSpot no longer exists in Africa.
Meanwhile dejayM has spurred me on with LICHENS - good in winter - see the proliferation of projects.
Also, I've set up two - very basic London projects - could others be set up to encourage tourists to add their pictures?
This was an observation by a tourist at the Cape in October 2017 - I was thrilled by his comment "Thanks, I'd never expect feedback on a group of organisms that goes unnoticed by many"
