Earth Day Virtual Celebration

Taking Part in Conservation: the Value of Citizen Science

This description is a quotation from the event page.

Join the Canadian Wildlife Federation in celebration of Earth Day and CWF’s 60th anniversary in learning how you can contribute to conservation using just a phone or digital camera.

Ordinary people turned citizen scientists are contributing valuable information every day to help conserve our natural world. Through apps and websites like iNaturalist Canada and initiatives like the City Nature Challenge, thousands of people are contributing millions of observations, filling gaps that scientists can’t accomplish on their own.

Join CWF’s English Webinar with James Pagé to hear about the value of citizen science data and how to take part.

Whether you are an expert, a seasoned #BioBlitz participant or getting involved for the first time, it couldn’t be easier to join in. It is as simple as 1-2-3!

1. Download the iNaturalist app and sign in.

2. Find wildlife. It can be any wild plant, insects, mushrooms, animal, fungi, or any other evidence of life (shells, scat, fur, tracks, feathers, nests) found in your neighborhood, home, backyard, or even through your windows. You might be surprised by how many insects thrive in the nooks and crannies around you.

3. Upload the the networking community on iNaturalist. You don’t even have to know anything about the species you are observing. Teams of experts will be reviewing and updating the information that’s submitted, so you can log back in later and learn more about what you’ve spotted.

If you truly love nature, you will find beauty everywhere.

    The trees and vegetation, which cover the land surface of the Earth and delight the eye, are performing vital tasks incumbent upon the vegetable world in nature. Its presence is essential to earth as an organism. It is the first condition of all life; it it the ‘skin’ of the earth, for without it there can be no water, and therefore, no life.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

    Most of the important things in the world
    have been accomplished by people
    who have kept on trying
    when there seemed to be no hope at all.
    – Dale Carnegie
