Earthwatch - Many hands, new knowledge: The value of citizen science

Join top conservation scientists for a fun and informative evening exploring how, with the help of volunteers, they can win the battle to protect some of our most iconic species from the threat of extinction.

Join us on an exciting journey to the forests of Nova Scotia, and the depths of the Pacific Ocean, all from the comfort of your seats at the Royal Geographical Society.

You'll hear from Dr Megill about his marine projects, researching and conserving the grey whale and the critically endangered black sea turtle in Canada and Mexico. Learn how, with the help of Earthwatch volunteers, Megill is pushing the frontiers of conservation science, leading to great successes in the battle to protect these charismatic species.

Using their climate change research project as a case study, Drs Buesching and Newman will answer the all important question; do volunteers really make a difference to environmental research, and what benefits do volunteers derive from participating in citizen science?
