    Volunteers are the heart of British conservation. Many such volunteers give up their time to collect scientific information, such as the number of birds in a woodland, or sightings of invasive species. These endeavours are known as ‘citizen science’. Phil investigates the diversity of citizen science projects, examines their value, and shows how you can get involved. So, grab your coat, wave your conservation themed flags, and salute the trees, as we explore the world of citizen science… --- If you like this episode, or any other, why not hit that subscribe button?

    Citizen science is a way for the average person to do real "help answer the big questions" science. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

(Visit: http://www.uctv.tv) A love of learning and teaching about pirates inspired UC San Diego’s Mark Hanna to tap the world-renowned Hill Collection of Pacific Voyages, housed in Special Collections & Archives at the UC San Diego Library, to bring history to life in his mobile classroom. Hanna’s students discover the authentic Golden Age of Piracy by reading the Hill Collection log books and other original documents, touring the Real Pirates! exhibit at the San Diego Natural History Museum, and sailing on the Californian at the Maritime Museum of San Diego. Here Be Pirates: The First Citizen Scientists is presented by the UC San Diego Library Channel. Series: "The Library Channel" [Humanities] [Show ID: 28213]

Evolutionary biologist and writer Rob Dunn humorously explores citizen science, big data, and the yet undiscovered world around, and even ON, us. This TEDxSantaCruz talk is one of 22 surrounding our theme of "Activate" at the third full-day TEDxSantaCruz event held March 8, 2014 at the Hotel Paradox in Santa Cruz, CA. http://www.tedxsantacruz.org/ Rob Dunn is a writer and evolutionary biologist who studies the life inhabiting what he considers to be one of many last frontiers, human backyards, bedrooms and bodies. He does this work by engaging the public in the study of their own homes and bodies through the yourwildlife.org project. Dunn leads projects on the mites found on adult humans, bacteria in belly buttons and guts, fungi in houses, and ants in backyards. Dunn has written three books, Every Living Thing, The Wild Life of Our Bodies, and The Man Who Touched his Own Heart (2015). In addition, he has worked with the public to publish three books based on studies based on public science, Dr. Eleanor's Book of Common Ants, Dr. Eleanor's Book of Common Ants of New York City and The Book of Invisible Life (2015). http://www.robdunnlab.org/ In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

With the social platforms and technologies of the 21st century, more and more individuals are able to participate in scientific research and activities. In ocean conservation, these “Citizen Scientists”, including divers and snorkelers, can help to monitor the health of our oceans. Image credits: Universal Studios Licensing LLC, Safecast, Foldit, Jacques Cousteau, Ocean Surface Temperature, Overfishing Trawler, Hypoxic Dead Zone, Clouds over Atlantic, Ham Tin Wan, OCTO23 Technologies, Viccisitudes population by Decaires Jason Taylor, Reef Check. Jordan began his career with Lockheed Martin Space Systems as an algorithms engineer on a distributed space robotics platform. Shortly after, he created OCTO23 Technologies, an invention firm based in San Francisco and Hong Kong focusing on clean energy and ocean conservation technologies. Since 2008, OCTO23 has developed multiple spin-off technologies and companies such as a modular non-turbine wind energy generator and the B-Squares modular electronic platform, which was one of Kickstarter's top 10 funded projects in 2012. Currently Jordan is developing OCTOtalk, a technology for underwater wireless communication and Citizen Science platform for crowdsourced ocean monitoring. Jordan received his B.S. at Massachusetts Institute of Technology and his M.S. at Stanford University, both in the field of Aeronautical/Astronautical Engineering with a focus on Robotics. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

A system of at least five exoplanets has been discovered by citizen scientists through a project called Exoplanet Explorers, part of the online platform Zooniverse, using data from NASA's Kepler space telescope. This is the first multi-planet system discovered entirely through crowdsourcing. A study describing the system has been accepted for publication in The Astronomical Journal. https://authors.library.caltech.edu/84280/ Thousands of citizen scientists got to work on Kepler data in 2017 when Exoplanet Explorers launched. It was featured on a program called Stargazing Live on the Australia Broadcasting Corporation (ABC). On the final night of the three-day program, researchers announced the discovery of a four-planet system. Since then, they have named it K2-138 and determined that it has a fifth planet -- and perhaps even a sixth, according to the new paper.

Follow our Woodland Park Zoo ZooCorps and Citizen Scientist Volunteers as they explore Carkeek Park in Seattle and show you some of the ways we monitor for amphibians in our wetlands. Woodland Park Zoo, Northwest Trek, and Point Defiance Zoo & Aquarium partnered with Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW) to train volunteers in surveying for amphibian egg masses in local ponds and wetlands for the third year. Participants are trained in the WDFW-approved protocol as well as in identification of the egg masses of eight different amphibian species. Volunteers have access to monitoring tools, including hip waders, digital cameras, and GPS units, and are monitoring for the presence of egg masses once a month from February through August in a local pond or wetland. Data sheets with information on locations of sightings are sent to biologists at WDFW, who use the information to monitor the presence of these species at sites across western Washington.
