Federation University Australia and the Centre for eResearch and Digital Innovation (CeRDI) is undertaking an important research project on citizen science.
They are inviting coordinators and program leaders of all community-based water monitoring programs and freshwater citizen science projects in Australia to ask about their views and experience working with their program.
This study is a key step in building an understanding of the nature and extent of community-based water monitoring programs in Australia and will fill a critical knowledge gap about the impact of citizen science programs on waterway management and policy development.
The research findings from this study will be used to inform the planning and development of citizen science and community-based monitoring programs in order to maximise their purpose and potential in catchment management.
Completing the survey may take 15-20 minutes. All participants will be sent a summary copy of the results and you and your program will be assured of complete confidentiality.
