Harnessing the Power of Community Science for the California Coast

California’s iconic coast spans 1,100 miles and is home to an incredible diversity of species that provide food, recreation, storm protection, and other benefits to Californians, but are increasingly impacted by climate change. Join Dr. Nat Low, a Biodiversity Data Specialist, to learn about how the Academy is mobilizing thousands of Californians to record biodiversity along their coast, and how these crowdsourced datasets are being used to develop an early warning and forecasting system for future biodiversity change.
