5 Citizen Science Projects in Hawai’i
Interested in contributing to the study of Hawai’i as a citizen scientist?
We recommend these Citizen Science Projects in Hawai’i:
The OPIHI Project – Intertidal Data Collection
OPIHI (Our Project in Hawaii’s Intertidal) is a school-based monitoring program of Hawaii’s rocky intertidal where students improve their scientific skills while providing assistance gathering data in an area that has not been well studied in Hawaii.
The Hawai’i and Pacific Islands King Tides Project
Citizens can document high tide impacts on coastal areas using an App.
The Pueo Project
Hawaii Audubon Society’s Christmas Bird Count
