Participatory and Citizen Science Working Group
Begun in 2016, the Participatory and Citizen Science Working Group (PaCS) facilitates citizen science research and practice that aids the Society for Conservation Biology in achieving its mission of preserving the Earth’s biodiversity. We welcome all SCB members who are interested in involving members of the public in conservation research. We take a broad view of citizen science, also commonly referred to as participatory or community science, to include research involving the general public in conservation science. We welcome all SCB members who are interested in the application of participatory and citizen science to biodiversity conservation to join this working group.
