The Irish Community Archive Network presents this fascinating talk with plant ecologist Dr Fran Giaquinto, on what it means to be a citizen scientist and how we can all contribute.
One of the best ways to promote biodiversity is to protect what you have and, to do this, it’s necessary to find out what you have. This online talk outlines how easy and enjoyable citizen science can be for the whole family and how as citizen scientists working together, we can turn the tide on biodiversity loss.
