November Microvolunteering Opportunities

SHARE

We have two new micro-volunteering opportunities for you this week.

Help the National Museum of Kenya to transcribe their vertebrae fossil specimens cards into their database. The Palaeontology Collection of National Museums of Kenya houses the natural fossil heritage of Kenya, having over 200,000 fossil specimens from more than 100 fossil sites concentrated within the Rift Valley.

Help to classify camera trap photos of different animals!

Camera trapping is a great non-invasive way to monitor mammal life – strapping a heat-sensitive, motion-activated camera to a tree.

Volunteers at eMammal deployed hidden cameras across the US in attempts to collect photos and gather data on certain animal behaviors.  Help the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute and the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences to understand the diversity of mammals in a given location.
