Just as the title suggests.

It would be really helpful to have a filter that allows one to see (or exclude) introduced or invasive species on the map.

Often the ID on the individual observation will provide an alert that the species is introduced, but I do not see any way to sort on the explore/map page by that criterion despite iNaturalist already keeping track of it.

For those of us in conservation this would be a really useful addition and one that should be reasonably easy to implement.

Thanks,

Try checking "Introduced".

How on earth did I miss that?

I spent a bunch of time trying all sort of other options, yet somehow didn't see that check-box.

<Face-palm>

My wife asks me “did you have a look, or did you have a male look?”

hahahahahahahaha 

But some of the iNat features are pretty cryptic or buried or even totally undocumented. Kind of like the special in n out burgers.

sorry. it's not even just a yankee thing. It's a california thing. No idea why i posted it here :)  But it's a burger chain where you can get different toppings and stuff if you know what to ask for but they aren't on the menu

I had a long look, checked all sorts of tabs and check boxes, tried various search filter terms, etc.

Somehow I still missed that.

I would like a Native specific toggle as there is a difference and I see some introduced species not listed in some areas, but I'll look again before making any further suggestions.

My apologies, it was meant in humour... ie she says it to me when I can’t find something...
