Citizen Science Programmes for Cruisers

Through citizen science projects it is easy to team up with scientists to contribute valuable data to a variety of marine studies. There are many projects to choose from, on a wide range of topics offering a variety of levels of involvement. Research expeditions, especially offshore, can be very expensive – so scientists often welcome data from volunteers.
