Shazam: there is an application to identify plants and animals from a photo

The Shazam of fauna and flora exists and it is called Seek. This image recognition application can identify any plant, flower or animal with a simple photo. The app also offers cards to learn about the item identified. This educational component makes it even more useful.

Like Shazam, the application to identify any song, there are applications that can make you an indisputable flora and fauna. This is the case of Seek, an application developed by iNaturalist, an association that brings together thousands of researchers passionate about nature. The principle is the same as that of Shazam. You see a plant, a flower or an animal whose name you do not know. Just a simple photo to identify it with a good level of reliability.

Seek can identify plants and animals around you

Seek uses image recognition to identify thousands of species of plants and animals in just a few seconds: birds, amphibians, plants, or even fungi commonly found in your area. All you have to do is go out and explore nature to learn about the flora and fauna around you.

Like Shazam for music, Seek identifies plants and animals in seconds. Just take a picture of the item you want to know the name. The application also provides a Wikipedia article summary for the identified species, as well as a section on similar species. It's also possible to earn badges and take on challenges as you add new species to your discoveries. Seek is available on the Play Store, but also on iOS and has a database of about 30,000 species.
