outreach and citizen science

Science communication is a priority in our group. We keep blogs, write articles to local newspapers, give interviews, and go to schools to give lectures to students. We include amateur field assistants to our fieldwork projects. We believe that science communication is a key to a society that appreciates the value of healthy ecosystems and biodiversity.

We are developing citizen science projects for collecting biodiversity data from rivers and urban habitats, as a mean for awareness raising, but also for having more data available for assessing habitat quality in anthropogenically affected environments.
