Our goals are to engage & educate people of the biodiversity around them and contribute to citizen science to aid wildlife conservation efforts.
We also want to encourage non-profit groups, educators & researchers to run their own citizen science projects by elliminating the technical barriers and costs associated with maintaing them. We provide the online tools to setup your own citizen science project in 10 minutes with a group administrator account. Administrators can add/edit/remove users and manage user contributed sightings under one central account. Educators can manage a class of students contributing wildlife sightings as part of a class activity.
Most non-profit groups under estimate the time and money required to maintain a citizen science project and this often leads to the project ending in 1-2 years or not getting off the ground to begin with. Leave the technical aspects of data management and publication to us. Don't let your useful data gather dust and keep your project alive with our easy to use tools ! We use Darwin Core data collection standards and also publish sightings at the Global Biodiversity Institute Facilty (GBIF.org).
Promote your nature club, organization, business and school class. Website owners can also embed their sightings using an iframe.

This website was inspired by a project that occurred in Nova Scotia, Canada from 1900-1923, when a school superintendent started a project called 'The Thousand Eyes project', in which students from across the province gathered wildlife sighting data for the 23 years, producing a great deal of wildlife sightings which is valueable to this day !
