Sharing your checklists with eBirdThe NatureCounts app allows you to set up automated checklist sharing to eBird. This means that when you create a checklist through the NatureCounts app, it will create an identical checklist in eBird, allowing you to maintain all your checklists in eBird while also collecting program specific data for various NatureCounts projects. If you wish to use this feature, please visit your NatureCounts profile page and enter your eBird account details.
The app was funded with financial support from Environment and Climate Change Canada and the Royal Bank of Canada Tech for Nature Fund.
