Seawatchers: a citizen science project to involve society in marine research

ResumenThe Seawatchers project (www.seawatchers.org) aims to strength the links between marine research and society (including general public, policy makers, administrations, fishermen, schools, universities, and private companies). The project pursues to shear with the general public the scientific understanding of the ocean and its decisive role within the Earth system while participating in the data collection for research projects focusing on the assessment of ocean health status. Within this project citizens have the opportunity to participate in the research actions collecting a large panel of qualitative and quantitative data such as first sights and distribution of invasive species, detection of mass mortality events, effects of pollution, distribution of seabirds species and key physico-chemical parameters. The potential of this volunteer-based observation project is especially important for oceanographic research, due to operational complexity and economic costs of ocean research campaigns. Finally, this kind of social participation in current research project can also significantly contribute to a major consciousness of current environmental problems in the society.
