NEEF Citizen Science Website


"Observation is one of the most fundamental skills in scientific research, and while technology has provided the means to collect and monitor increasing amounts of information from all over the planet, there are still many cases in which the human eye is the best tool for the job. Citizen science projects call on the observations and simple analysis of the public to help professional scientists gather and interpret real-time information about our changing world. Opportunities range from recording wildlife in your 

backyard to crosschecking photos of penguin populations in Antarctica to performing easy water quality tests in your town and more.

No matter your age or level of scientific experience, citizen science offers a chance for everyone to get involved and contribute to the growing wealth of information we know about our planet." - NEEF, 2016
