Share Wildlife Observations
and Earn Prizes!

For every “share” or observation made, participants can earn between one to five points. Most prizes can be picked up any GetSpot but some are only available during ecoEXPLORE events.

How to Earn Bonus Points

Every “share” earns a point, but you can earn up to four additional bonus points by doing the following:

  • “Sharing” an observation of the current field season.
  • Making your “share” at an ecoEXPLORE HotSpot.
  • Identifying the correct plant or animal species.
  • Including a clear photograph that helps scientists confirm your ID.
