Science For The People: Citizen Science Day 2018

The oceans are in trouble, but in today's world, anybody can step up and become a hero.

Today is the day we make a real change together.

It’s the day we get out from behind our phone screens and get our hands dirty.

The day we all become scientists working together for a common goal.

Citizen Science is a global movement meant to give everyday people the tools and knowledge to help make the world a better place.

cit·i·zen sci·ence

noun

the collection and analysis of data relating to the natural world by members of the general public, typically as part of a collaborative project with professional scientists.

So what are you waiting for? The ocean needs your help now more than ever, and time is always the enemy.

Overfishing, climate change, invasive species, habitat loss, and pollution are all major threats to our world’s seas.

But there are also citizen science projects focused on understanding, and solving each of these problems.

So educate yourself today with the latest news in marine conservation, find a topic that you’re passionate about, and TAKE ACTION!

Planet Earth is huge, but with advances in modern technology, the world as we know it is becoming smaller and smaller. More and more connected. This means that people across the world can work together to answer a single question. And solve a global problem.

Sign up today and receive your very own passport to represent the high seas!
