Citizen Scientist Project

The mission of the Citizen Scientist Project is to use citizen and professional scientists to monitor and to protect resources, and to share information on the most critical natural resources of Key Biscayne and Virginia Key. Our vision is a future Key Biscayne characterized by the same bounty and quality of natural resources that exist today, thus maintaining the title of Island Paradise.

Established by the Key Biscayne Community Foundation, the Citizen Scientist Project seeks to have Key residents work with professional scientists to achieve four goals:

  • Learn about the natural resources of Key Biscayne and Virginia Key;
  • Experience the natural resources of the Key through participation in field trips;
  • Participate in citizen scientist projects, which are directed at protecting the natural resources of the Island; and
  • Suggest projects for the Citizen Scientist Project.
