Event Details

The team at the California Academy of Sciences would like to invite you to join a webinar “Community-powered biodiversity conservation: how your observations can guide management on the California coast”.

Over the last decade, tens of thousands of community scientists and volunteer naturalists together have collected hundreds of thousands of observations of biodiversity up and down the California coast. Boosted by community science campaigns such as Snapshot Cal Coast and crowdsourced via the iNaturalist platform, these community-contributed observations now represent one of the largest and fastest-growing datasets of biodiversity available in real-time and throughout the California coast.

In this Webinar, they will share how this somewhat messy but incredibly rich stream of information can be translated into timely insights useful to manage and conserve biodiversity on our coast. Join to learn how your volunteer observations are now more crucial than ever to safeguard biodiversity on our beloved coast.

When: Thursday February 25, 2021 02:00 PM Pacific Time (US and Canada)
