Go on Safari with Citizen Science!

 

This year we will be using Snapshot Safari to classify exotic animals in camera trap footage from Africa! 

Help scientists collect data by looking at images online from camera traps and answering questions about the animals you see.  It's that easy!

There are numerous ways that you can explore nature and create research-quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect threatened ecosystems.

In this event, we’ll show you how to connect with online communities of other naturalists and researchers - no prior experience required! All you need is a computer or smartphone and a sense of adventure.

 


Identify Plants and Animals Around You

We will also be using iNaturalist, a phone app that lets you share observations of plants and animals that you encounter in everyday life. iNaturalist helps you identify the plants and animals around you.

Get connected with a community of over 750,000 scientists and naturalists who can help you learn more about nature! What’s more, by recording and sharing your observations, you’ll create research quality data for scientists working to better understand and protect nature.
