Today is the start of a really exciting project. The Zooniverse is a citizen science platform that allows volunteers to participate in real science. A team from Zooniverse has spent the last six months building a tool that take our own and other researchers timelapse imagery and displays it to interested members of the public. This allows volunteers to click on penguins and help us to extract data from imagery. It’s called Penguin Watch – check it out here! http://www.penguinwatch.org
We hope that you will join us in sorting some of our 200,000 plus images of penguins into something that can make a difference to their conservation.
We’ll update you on the progress of this over the coming hours and days.
