Citizen Science

Citizen Science refers to the involvement of the general public or interdisciplinary interested parties in scientific projects. An academic requirement is not necessary. In this way, science can be experienced directly and, at the same time, valuable data of a type and scope that would be difficult to generate without this participation are generated. We at the Institute of Zoology appreciate this successful form of collaboration, where all participants benefit. You can see our current projects on our page. Attention: Participation is welcome!
