Citizen scientists: Pioneering a bright future for biodiversity research

Citizen scientists are revolutionizing our understanding of nature by contributing a staggering 9.6 million out of 10 million species observations last year. This surge is thanks to user-friendly apps like iNaturalist and FrogID, which streamline data collection.

Skepticism about data reliability is fading as we find that, when paired with professional data, citizen science is incredibly valuable. For some species, like the red-browed firetail finch, citizen scientists lead the way in data collection. As citizen science continues to grow, we’re unlocking a richer understanding of our ecosystems, with exciting potential for the future.
