How your observations can guide management on the California coast

Over the last decade, tens of thousands of community scientists and volunteer naturalists together have collected hundreds of thousands of observations of biodiversity up and down the California coast. Boosted by community science campaigns such as Snapshot Cal Coast and crowdsourced via the iNaturalist platform, these community-contributed observations now represent one of the largest and fastest-growing datasets of biodiversity available in real-time and throughout the California coast.

In this Webinar, the California Academy of Sciences will share how this somewhat messy but incredibly rich stream of information can be translated into timely insights useful to manage and conserve biodiversity on our coast. Join them to learn how your volunteer observations are now more crucial than ever to safeguard biodiversity on our beloved coast.
