Citizen Science Saturday At Ardastra Gardens Zoo
Saturday 22nd June 2019 1:00 PM
Mosquitoes are the world’s most dangerous animal, but monitoring efforts can bring early warning of potential disease outbreaks. Our citizen scientists will use the GLOBE Observer App to report potential mosquito habitats and the presence of mosquito larvae.
Paired with satellite observations of temperature, water and vegetation, scientists can forecast a communities’ risk of mosquito-borne diseases.
Mark your calendars for our FREE program designed for the whole family- Citizen Science Saturdays!
Each month, we will get involved with a different citizen science project and learn how to contribute valuable data to scientists here at home and all over the world.
This month we will learn how to get involved with I SEE CHANGE to investigate how weather and climate change are impacting our communities and environment.
Children can earn community service hours for participating.
Children 10 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Venue: Ardastra Gardens Zoo & Conservation Centre
