The Aquarium of the Pacific has begun to incorporate citizen science in our experiential learning opportunities. Acknowledging the range of backgrounds, skill-level, and desired time commitment of those interested in volunteering for one of our programs, the Aquarium is developing a diverse portfolio of programs ranging from low to high commitment levels.
Our goal is to use our Citizen Science Program as a tool for engaging the public in science, and empowering individuals to be a part of scientific studies within their own communities. A diverse selection of citizen science programs allow the community to connect to hands-on practical science and contribute to documenting urban wildlife in unique and meaningful ways.
