There are many facets to Citizen Science but in general terms it is about the public engaging with and sharing science in relation to the natural world. This could be through random observations and reporting, organised surveys, monitoring project progress & outcomes, recording methodologies and sharing knowledge to improve recovery of species and their habitats.
This page is set up to help groups and individuals undertaking or planning native flora & fauna projects in Victoria to connect with other sites for information relating to Citizen Science.
