Since 2018, nature lovers have been identifying and collecting wild flowering plants with our Flora Incognita app, and with the accompanied plant fact sheets, improved their species knowledge constantly. But, as you might know, Flora Incognita is more: Every confirmed observation (the green checkmark in the upper right corner after an identification) contributes to a vast, global collection of plant species observations with which our scientists research changes in biodiversity.
With our latest app release, we want to take this to a new level: We introduce the Flora Incognita badges! Each badge rewards the user for completing certain tasks: Collecting early-blooming flowers or grasses, the tree of the year, ferns or just using the app a couple of days in a row. You will find many challenges to solve – maybe you already have reached first goals?
You will find your collected badges in the profile section of the app. A tap on “Achievements” will lead you to an overview of all the tasks we have prepared for you. We hope this new feature will motivate you to look beyond the usual, take the extra path, examine plants even more closely. We’re looking forward to your feedback! A rating in the app store, a share on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram, or even a recommendation to a friend are ways to spread the news that we highly appreciate!
If you find anything peculiar or working unexpectedly, send us an e-mail. And now, check out if you’ve already earned some badges!
