“When we try to pick out one thing by itself we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.” John Muir
National Geographic defines Citizen Science as the practice of public participation (young and old) and collaboration in scientific research to increase scientific knowledge. Trained volunteers share and contribute to data monitoring and collection programs and work with scientific researchers to answer real-world questions.
