Citizen science refers to the community participating in organised research efforts to survey the biodiversity around us. As a citizen scientist, you aid in the collection of large amounts of data, and learn more about our biodiversity at the same time. The data you collect can inform decision makers and help in the formulation of conservation strategies.
There is a variety of citizen science initiatives available to the public and school groups. The programmes target specific groups of animals like birds, butterflies and dragonflies. Find out more about the Citizen Science Programmes from the National Biodiversity Centre.
