The Dynamic Dunescapes Citizen Science App helps make monitoring sand dune habitats easier. Environmental monitoring is an essential part of any conservation project. We want to know the health and distribution of the species that we're trying to support, and we need to know whether our actions are helping. So, we've created a free, easy-to-use smartphone app to help us gather reliable, long-term data at our project sites.
The app is for Dynamic Dunescapes site managers, reserve staff, and trained volunteers to conduct monitoring activities and record data whilst out on Dynamic Dunescapes sites. If you are a volunteer or citizen scientist with Dynamic Dunescapes, speak to your site manager about getting involved and using the app. If you're not yet a volunteer, but would like to help us manage our sand dunes, you can register your interest by filling out a short form on our volunteering page, and a member of your local team will get back to you.
