Citizen Science ProjectPlate Watch

Get Involved

With the help of citizen scientists, we hope to be able to increase the number of tiles (and the amount of data) that we have to work with. We’re excited to try to answer some of our questions on the Zooniverse platform. We are hoping to build a community of citizen scientists who are interested in helping us identify fouling organisms in more places, find new species, or watch these communities change over time.

Check out Invader ID on Zooniverse to get started!
