Citizen science initiatives play a crucial role in democratizing scientific research, bridging the gap between the scientific community and the general public. These initiatives empower individuals to contribute to scientific data collection, analysis, and dissemination, encouraging a greater understanding and appreciation of science among laypeople. The participation of citizens in science also allows for more and more frequent collection of data that would otherwise not be possible financially and time-wise for scientists. 

We have collaborated with citizens through various channels, including partnerships with Ciência Viva and participation in the ANERIS project, as well as through our own initiatives. Take a peek at our guide for intertidal biodiversity HERE.

This year our group is organizing the bioMARatona Norte - an initiative in which we organized several outings to the beach to mobilize the general population to contribute to science. More news soon! Follow us on instagram @biomaratona_norte
