Marine citizen science in Europe survey

Successful marine environmental management addresses the needs and interests of stakeholders and communities.

Marine Citizen Science is growing in Europe, but its potential for marine conservation and management is poorly understood. Now, researchers from the German Centre for Integrative Biodiversity (iDiv) in Leipzig invite you to participate in a survey on Marine Citizen Science in Europe.

The survey

This survey is the first phase of a project on the perceptions and opinions of Marine Citizen Science coordinators and participants in European projects. The project builds upon data collected by the European Marine Board and this survey is also part of the ECOPOTENTIAL research project.

The project is partly funded by the Green Talents Awards, a German Programme that recognises young, high potential researchers. Rachel Kelly (PhD student) was awarded this prize last autumn and is using the opportunity to conduct research on the role of Marine Citizen Science in Europe for marine conservation and regulation.

Go to the survey  It will take about 10 minutes to complete.

If you have any questions please contact Rachel at

Please note: This survey will close on Friday 14th of July
