CIE’s Wild Webinars 2022 – Citizen science powering conservation

Deakin University’s Centre for Integrative Ecology presents its Wild Webinars 2022 on-line public seminar series. The series brings exciting science stories live into your evening. Kick back and be regaled by the latest discoveries in ecology, conservation, evolution and sustainability presented by CIE’s leading research experts.

Citizen science – or community science – is the “public participation and collaboration in scientific research with the aim to increase scientific knowledge” (ACSA).

This webinar is a tribute to the citizen scientists increasingly powering scientific research at Deakin University and globally.

Three researchers (Prof. Marcel Klaassen, and PhD candidates Anne Eichholtzer and Nicholas Carter) will discuss on-going projects, that would not be possible without the involvement of the community. We will share stories and findings, along with some remaining challenges for citizen science to reach its full potential as a research and engagement tool.
