ReefID's Most Wanted

most wanted - nudibranchs

ReefID's Most Wanted feature is a way to participate and have fun with ReefID's efforts to target and fill a specific area of the identifier.

 

Each quarter the wanted poster will display a specific inhabitant we'd like our users to focus on to fill the database. In addition to being posted in your personal galleries, a specific gallery will be set up to display most wanted submissions with links back to your individual profiles.

 

From these submissions, ReefID will select the entries that best help others identify what they see to add to the identifier as well as special submissions and photographers that will be displayed on the home page.

 

To participate, create a new adventure in your account, upload images and we'll do the rest.   All galleries created in the respective most wanted period will be inspected for possible entries and placed into the appropriate most wanted galleries. A note in the description field regarding what you think you have photographed and were you were when you too the picture is always helpful. 

 

If you are not a photographer but would still like to participate, help us identify.  Use the comments section underneath each image in the most wanted galleries to give us your best guess at what we're looking at (Comming Soon!).  A special shout out will be given to all that do their part.

 

Happy hunting!
