Be a good citizen...Be a Citizen Scientist!

Want to do something good for your community and the environment? Not sure where to start? Try citizen science - or volunteer environmental monitoring - and start collecting data on water quality, air quality, biodiversity, climate change and so much more from your community or watershed. Help decision-makers gather as much information as possible to make effective and sustainable choices in planning for our environment.

Our Partners

The Citizen Science Network is a project of Wildlife Habitat Canada, though it would not be possible without the support our PARTNERS.

Who's Monitoring in my Area?

The first step in becoming involved with citizen science is to find out who is monitoring what and where it's being monitored. Search our database of initiatives by region or browsing by category to find a project that interests you. Or you can add your initiative to the network and get others involved.

Volunteer Monitoring Opportunities

For a listing of volunteer opportunities in the Greater Toronto Area, please visit the Toronto Region Conservation Authority's Volunteer Job Board.

Elk Bovine Tuberculosis Monitoring Program
Bovine tuberculosis (TB) is a contagious and communicable disease caused by bacteria. It affects cattle, bison, deer, elk, goats, and other species, including humans. Elk and deer hunters in the Bovine TB Surveillance Area (Game Hunting Areas 23 and 23A, 18,18A, 18B, 18C and 13A) are asked to submit elk and deer heads and lungs. The samples are examined for bovine TB. What can hunters do? Fully participate in the surveillance of elk and deer for bovine TB. It is important that samples from all elk and deer be submitted. Just because there are no abnormal growths does not mean that the animal is not infected.

Le Comité de l'Environnement de Chicoutimi (CEC)

Le Comité de l'Environnement de Chicoutimi (CEC) est un organisme à but non lucratif voué à la conservation de l'environnement. Impliqué depuis la fin des années 70 dans des actions d'éducation et de mise en valeur en matière environnementale, il œuvre principalement dans la région du Saguenay, et plus particulièrement à Chicoutimi. Depuis le début des années 1990, le CEC augmente considérablement sa visibilité en réalisant divers projets de nettoyage, de renaturalisation et de mise en valeur des coulées, des berges du Saguenay urbain et de plusieurs de ses tributaires. Il favorise annuellement la création de dizaines d'emplois chez les étudiants, les jeunes, ainsi que les personnes défavorisées ou en réintégration au marché du travail.

Abbotsford Ravine Park Salmon Enhancement Society
Our Society has a hatchery site located in Ravine Park in central Abbotsford next to Willband Creek. We involve students in every aspect of what we do - from a high school construction class building our hatchery building, to a local youth ecoworks crew capturing our springs, to youth at risk crews working on our pond, to a large Salmonids in the Classroom Program through 40+ schools. Our hatchery is their 'live classroom'. Abbotsford Senior Secondary is located adjacent to the hatchery and has work experience students helping us with our projects and monitoring the Coho salmon every year. The school is in the process of developing a course on fisheries & wildlife next year to be held in our hatchery's meeting/classroom. The Society has several public PR events each year as well, and the media coverage and community support for our efforts has been great!

Gold River Watershed Committee
Our group gets together to decide on issues and projects related to our area and to coordinate the other groups in our area who are involved in fish and fish habitat stewardship activities.
