Citizen Science

Citizen Science is a research and monitoring program driven by volunteers to raise awareness about our environment and wildlife in Western Australia. These volunteers are often individuals who share a common interest in science and conservation.

CCWA's Citizen Science Program is designed to generate engagement at a community level and fill some of the important gaps in knowledge left by our governments, industries and research institutions. Outcomes from this include improved local environmental knowledge, community empowerment in decision-making processes and an increased engagement with the natural environment.

Our collaboration between scientists, graduates, students, and local community activists helps Citizen Science and CCWA achieve amazing things.
