Join us for a Q&A with Kathryn Youngblood, the citizen science manager for the Marine Debris Tracker project.
About the Project:
Thousands of volunteers have found and logged online over two million pieces of litter and debris all over the world thanks to Debris Tracker, a digital tool to report the litter you see, whether on land or in water. Citizen scientists' data helps scientists study the health of vulnerable ecosystems and how litter can be washed into streams, lakes, and oceans, and the data help Debris Tracker managers identify places that need volunteer clean ups.
Tune in on Zoom for an hour interview to discover how data like yours has helped Debris Tracker and other projects.
