My Goals for 2024

My goals for 2024:

Reach 2,200 species.
This I feel like would be fairly easy to acheive. I only need less than 400 lifers.

Reach 65,000 identifications.
This might be a little difficult but I feel like I can make it. I need close to 25,000 more ids.

Reach 20,000 observations.
This might be a little to ambitous but I think there is a chance I can make it. I observe around 5,000 obs a year so I would have to double that in 2024 to reach my goal.

This takes nothing but commitment, an observation every day.
My longest streak I think is like 3-4 months (don’t quote me on it) so it will take some work, but certainly in the realm of possibility.
