Citizen science can help researchers solve problems

Citizen Science involves volunteers, in partnership with scientists, participating in scientific projects. It helps people connect with nature and learn new things. 

Citizen scientists often use their smart phones to collect data. Taking photos of plants and animals and submitting these online into research projects. This valuable data can help scientific research and decision-making. 

You can: 

  • learn new skills
  • connect with like-minded people
  • have fun.

All while making a meaningful contribution to science.

Everyone is welcome and you don’t need a science background. All you need is an enquiring mind. 

If you want to become a citizen scientist, then our events can help you on your journey.
