That's where you come in! With over 15,000 freshwater fish species (and with numbers continually growing!), scientists need your help to carry out a global ...more ↓

Endorsement

"Biodiversity change is complex to track because it happens everywhere. Citizen science is one of the most important approaches to provide data on the dynamics of biodiversity change, as it is possible to have observers in many places. BioBlitz initiatives help mobile citizen scientists to this task. Making the data collected publicly available in centralized databases allows scientists to develop models and indicators that can be used to inform decision makers of current trends and management options to reduce biodiversity loss."
