Our Veterans Citizen Science Pilot was featured on the July 18th airing of ”Voice of the Veteran” on WNHU, hosted by Gabe Kautzner and Justin Furuare. This show is dedicated to making veterans aware of resources available to aid their transition following military service.
During this year, we will not be offering a citizen science competition as we did last summer. Instead we are conducting a pilot study looking at the response of Veterans as they view wildlife images from our project and are gathering Veterans’ input regarding the development of this citizen science program. If you are a Veteran in the Connecticut area and would like to take part, please see the menu link above and the accompanying recruitment flier at Trinity College Veterans Citizen Science Flyer summer 2014
Here are the latest team standings (click on table to enlarge) as of Monday (11/11) morning. Keep up the good work. Looks like it will be an exciting run for the pizza dinner. Thanks for your involvement.
Two weeks of Wildlife CSI have now passed. The contest remains very close, with the Trinvestigators maintaining their lead from last week. At this early point, any team could be the leader next week, if they provide a strong showing of carefully identified images.
Collectively, your class has now provided over 31,000 image categorizations. Thanks for this big contribution to our scavenging ecology research!
Human-dog interactions go back a long ways. Composting may figure into that history. As a paper published this spring argues, this human-canine association might have originated with wolves scavenging from ancient compost piles. Check out coverage of this research at
Don’t forget that our wrap-up webinar for Wildlife CSI – Summer 2013 is scheduled for Wednesday, 18 September from 7:00 to 7:45 p.m. (Eastern). It will provide an opportunity to tell you about some preliminary citizen science findings (including the environmental psychology study) and to get your feedback on your experience with Wildlife CSI. We can also consider use of Wildlife CSI with your students. The webinar link will be sent out to Wildlife CSI – Summer 2013 participants a few days ahead of the webinar. The webinar (only a single session) will be restricted to the first 25 participants, so if you wish to take part, be sure to log in early.
