New Citizen Science Program: Osprey-Watch

Osprey-Watch, a project to engage a global community to collect data on breeding ospreys, has just been launched by the Center for Conservation Biology.

Ospreys are one of very few conspicuous global sentinels for monitoring aquatic health. This project is intended to collect information on a large enough scale to be useful in addressing three of the most pressing issues facing aquatic ecosystems: global climate change, depletion of fish stocks, and environmental contaminants.

Osprey-Watch should allow observers anywhere to map Osprey nests, log observations, upload photos, and interact within an observer forum.
