Enjoy getting outside in nature? Do you want to make a difference and help the ocean and marine wildlife? We talk with Dana Roeber Murray, Senior Coastal Policy Manager and Marine Scientist for Heal the Bay, who tells us about citizen science, where trained volunteers do the work that scientists do. Find out how individuals, communities and school groups with classroom and field training collect information, how the data is used and how you can become a citizen scientist.
Everyday Action: Get involved in a citizen science project!
