Citizen Science

You do not need to be a professional ornithologist to contribute to the scientific study and conservation of birds. Data gathered through Citizen Science have contributed immensely to ornithology, and many research studies could not be done without the participation of citizen scientists. This website highlights the larger national citizen science resources and projects directed toward birds. There are many other local, regional, or taxon-specific projects where you can get involved. Learn more through this website about how you can make a difference!
