Citizen Science

citizen science
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.


Citizen Science is as old as science itself, however it has experienced a resurgence in recent years with more and more scientists relying on the efforts and expertise of the general public to progress research outcomes.

There are many different citizen science projects that you can get involved in, some are based here in Tasmania while others are based overseas and require online participation. Explore the links below to find the perfect project for you!
