Citizen science sees community volunteers work with EPA on scientific projects. Volunteers collect and study scientific data, and may co-design projects. 

Why citizen science benefits the community and the environment

Citizen science helps the community and EPA build a shared understanding of environmental issues. The partnership program aims to: 

  • provide high quality applied science outcomes for Victorians 
  • help community play a meaningful role in environmental science and decision making 
  • foster advances in science through new technology and new ways to deal with environmental issues.
