Citizen Science course

25 September 2023

The Tropical Biology Association is calling for applications from African conservation scientists for an in-person course to be held in Nairobi over five days in December.

Analyzing citizen science data, and communicating results is designed for African conservation scientists who already have citizen science data and who wish to gain skills in analysing and using their data for providing evidence to guide conservation management and policy. Preference will be for individuals working on birds (other taxa will be considered by exception) in East and West Africa.

The course is organised by the Tropical Biology Association together with the Kenya Bird Map and the Nigeria Bird Atlas Project. It forms part of the activities under the project Improved Decision-making Using Citizen Science.

The project is funded by the UK Government through the Darwin Initiative
