Community Science Project
I joined the iNaturalist project which empowers citizens to record biodiversity. The goal of the project is to go out in the wild and take pictures of the nature around you and send your findings to their website. I joined this project because I enjoy hiking and taking these photos was very entertaining. I helped the community by providing images of the current Arizonian environment which land managers and scientist can use to monitor changes in the environment. Science is important because with it we can use it to understand changes in the environment and why they happen. After doing this, I felt very content with myself because I had helped the community once more.
