Congratulations to NatureMapr co-founder Dr Michael Mulvaney for reaching 40,000 expert ID confirmations.

Absolutely incredible!

That is 40,000 occasions where Michael has been able to share his knowledge and expertise with someone in the community and where a record has been formally verified prior to being ingested as an official government biodiversity record.

Then there are the thousands of helpful and informative comments, recommendations and advice that Michael contributes on a daily basis.

Michael's leadership within the community has helped define our culture and has provided inspiration for how NatureMapr moderators go about their important and hugely valued work.

You are a legend Michael M!

(Only 20,000 ID's to go before Tapirlord catches up)

And especially valuable has been when Michael regularly goes back through old unknowns and is able to provide an ID for some of them as well as identifying the occasional posting that has been missed by moderators and providing an ID for those as well. Dedication indeed!

How do we as a nature loving community support this essential tool and the amazing people, like Michael, who made it possible for us as private land managers to identify and monitor our species.
Without Nature Mapr we are unsupported in our quest to increase biodiversity in an agricultural landscape.
Thank you Michael and team!!!

its a really impressive achievement, Michael: a lot of time and generosity on your part, and infectious enthusiasm. NatureMapr wouldn't have been what it is without your impetus.

Amazing Michael. Lucky they didn't give you a cake with 40,000 candles! You really inspired me early on to find out and learn more, when I didn't know a fly from a bee! Kylie :)

Thank you all for your kind and supportive comments- I have really enjoyed learning from you all on the way and am very proud of what we have achieved together. We know so much more about our local wildlife through our collective action than I ever envisaged possible. We make a difference every day. Aaron has been and is amazing and has been heavily subsidising Naturemapr for years, not just in brain power but financially. Naturemapr would also not be what it is without the tireless testing and system support of Michael B. Together with the 11,000 that have contributed records we make a great team.

Congratulations Michael M. The 10 years have gone so quickly but have been very rewarding. I feel privileged to have been part of this massive creation. Your 40,000 sightings ID'd at 4000 per year is a good average. The numbers don't include all the background work that you have done to support NatureMapr which is immeasurable !
