National Marine Sanctuaries Citizen Science

Citizen science is a term that describes projects in which volunteers partner with scientists to answer real-world questions. These volunteers can work with scientists to identify research questions, collect and analyze data, interpret results, make new discoveries, develop technologies and applications, as well as solve complex problems. See a listing of opportunities within the National Marine Sanctuary System.

Citizen science volunteers conduct water quality monitoring in the watersheds of our national marine sanctuaries.

Eligibility: Some age restrictions apply to various citizen science opportunities
