Citizen science is the driving force behind conservation work in Scotland, and it’s integral to the work that NatureScot does. Taking part in Citizen Science is a really useful way of helping the environment and expanding our scientific knowledge. Information gathered by Citizen Scientists is vital to scientists across Scotland in understanding how the environment is doing and where more action is needed. By getting involved you really can make a difference! There are different surveys to take part in depending on how much time you have to spend, and many of them don’t require any previous knowledge. Check out these great resources spanning a range of areas, habitats and species.
