Come and see us this Saturday for a Citizen Science Day!
Citizen Science is a rapidly growing field - with literally hundreds of projects around Australia where researchers are asking for the public's help to do REAL science. If you are in South Australia, come along to the Barr Smith Lawns at the University of Adelaide this Saturday the 24th March to find out about local projects you can be involved in! Also learn more about the exciting and important environmental research coming out of our University. 

This is a day for anyone and everyone who loves - or is just curious about - science, the environment and the world around us and wants to get more involved. Or even to just come chat to us at EchidnaCSI - we'd love to meet you all.
Plus there's a free BBQ!!

Please book through Eventbrite here just so we can get estimation of numbers.

Get involved in Earth Hour 2018

We are running Citizen Science Day in conjunction with WWF's Earth Hour campaign. Have you heard about Earth Hour? It is the world's biggest movement to protect our planet. Millions of people each year turn their lights off from 8.30-9.30pm in order to make a statement about how we want to see changes in policy to better protect our environment - and it's happening again this Saturday night.

WWF's new campaign is #Connect2Earth where they want to see as many people as possible get more involved in helping the environment - hence why we're teaming up with them to put on Citizen Science Day. 
"Being aware means that we can all take actions to protect our biodiversity and nature, it means we can live more sustainably, and expect the same of businesses and governments"

Make sure you register for Earth Hour to show that you're going to switch off - and you could win a trip to the Great Barrier Reef!

And find out more about WWF and their mission here.
