Scientists are increasingly turning towards to the public in gathering data about our environment. Citizen Science is a huge movement that anyone can be a part of.
Here is a list of websites to visit if you wish to participate in citizen science projects that are ongoing within Australia.
The Australian Citizen Science Association

The Atlas of Living Australia
The ALA is Australia’s national biodiversity database. Founded on the principle of data sharing – collect it once, share it, use it many times – the ALA provides free, online access to millions of occurrence records to form the most comprehensive and accessible data set on Australia’s biodiversity ever produced. By aggregating biodiversity information and making it more available online, the ALA is assisting scientists, planners, managers and others to create a more detailed picture of Australia’s biodiversity. The ALA is used for research, environmental monitoring, conservation planning and management, education, and citizen science activitivities. Contribute to the Atlas of Living Australia
