Anyone can become a citizen scientist

Are you a science lover but not a scientist? Becoming a citizen scientist has never been easier. A citizen science project can involve one person or millions of people collaborating for a common goal. As a citizen scientist, you'll help us gain a better understanding of the world and our place in it.

The David Suzuki Foundation joined the U.S.-based SciStarter program, which connects scientists and community leaders to more than 1,100 citizen science projects and to anyone wishing to contribute to scientific research.

Scientists and researchers can find help

Scientists from around the world can add and update their research to SciStarter's Project Finder to be accessed by a network of project supporters and participants. The David Suzuki Foundation and SciStarter want to help promote and amplify your work. Start by creating an account and add your project.

Here is a sample of projects on SciStarter's Project Finder:
