The Importance of Citizen Science

Fourbirdsaboating will visit many remote areas whilst they are at sea. Places of the world that even scientists don’t get to visit, so the data they collect on their journeys will be crucial for understanding more about the state of the planet, and making informed decisions on conservation and government policy, as well as human physiology in remote environments.

Citizen Science. What Research will Fourbirdsaboating be involved in during the ocean expeditions?

Three Aspects of Citizen Science

The Fourbirdsaboating team will collect data on three different themes during their journeys:

1. Marine Debris and Plastic Pollution

2. Flora and Fauna

3. Human Endurance and Exercise Physiology

The team will be so remote, that even the leading experts rarely get to visit here. The data collected by Fourbirdsaboating will be useful for checking the accuracy of computer models and for validating other research.
