Be a citizen scientist

By getting involved with a citizen science program, you can help NOAA collect data that can help preserve and protect our planet. NOAA offers a broad range of programs you can participate in, ranging from counting whales to reporting your local weather. You can join an in-person project or choose one that you can participate in virtually from your computer or smartphone.
