The workshop will start in the early afternoon on Monday and conclude at lunchtime on Wednesday. The workshop is limited to 25 participants. Teams of two to five people are encouraged to apply, but individuals are welcome. Applications for the workshops will be accepted on a rolling basis. Applicants that are selected to participate will be notified well prior to the workshop so that they can make any necessary travel plans.

1m2 por los ríos, lagos y embalses



Mar 09, 2024 to Mar 24, 2024
Esta campaña de ciencia ciudadana y recogida de residuos tiene como objetivo profundizar en el conocimiento de los residuos abandonados que invaden los diferentes entornos fluviales de nuestro país. Esta basuraleza que acaba amenazando a todos los ecosistemas marinos ha sido arrastrada y transportada por los cauces fluviales. Evitar su proliferación en ríos, pantanos y embalses y mejorar el conocimiento científico que se tiene sobre su impacto ambiental es por lo tanto primordial para la conservación de estos espacios naturales. Por ello, LIBERA, además de con esta campaña, colabora con varias confederaciones hidrográficas para actuar sobre las cuencas y de la mano de sus responsables, ahí y en más de 260 Espacios Naturales Protegidos. ¿Te apuntas? Puedes inscribirte entre el 9 de enero y el 4 de marzo de 2024. Antes del 4 de marzo te enviaremos un pack de participación con unas bolsas de basura y unos guantes protectores. También se ofrecerá una formación para los organizadores de los puntos. ¡Te esperamos!

Seagrass monitoring at Wave Break Island 1+2

Wave Break Island (Australia)

Mar 22, 2024 to Mar 22, 2024
Join our Ocean Connect marine science team on their fortnightly seagrass survey to actively monitor the status and trends in seagrass conditions around the Gold Coast. This event will be held at Wave Break Island, we will be meeting at the Marine Parade to board a small vessel to travel to Wavebreak island seagrass meadows. Seagrasses are a habitat forming species and they play a critical role in the equilibrium of coastal ecosystems. They provide many key ecosystem services, such as providing a nursery and habitat for animals, preventing coastal erosion and sequestering a large amount of carbon dioxide. 7 species occur in the Gold Coast region and cover an estimated 22% of the Broadwater. It is crucial to monitor these change in order to be able to mitigate widespread loss . Ultimately by protecting the seagrass meadows the wider Gold Coast community will indirectly benefit from the sustained water quality in the Gold Coast Broadwater and surrounding region, ultimately, enhancing recreational fishing, marine tourism and providing the right framework for future generations to enjoy. Participants will be trained in internationally standardized and recognized Seagrass-Watch training and will be briefed on seagrasses ecology, importance and threats before the session. The ongoing monitoring is supported by the City of Gold Coast Catchment and Citizen Science Grant program. This workshop is only suitable for adults over the 16 years of age in order to maintain scientific rigor and safety. This is an outdoor event. Everyone attending must register as spots are limited.

Citizen Science as a Path for Sustaining Healthy Waterbodies

Foz do Iguaçu (PR)

May 05, 2024 to May 09, 2024
O prazo para submissão de resumos é 22 de dezembro de 2023. É com grande satisfação que convidamos a todos e todas a participarem do 37º Congresso da Sociedade Internacional de Limnologia (SIL), que ocorrerá em Foz do Iguaçu, entre os dias 5 e 9 de maio de 2024. Neste Congresso haverá uma sessão temática “Citizen Science as a Path for Sustaining Healthy Waterbodies” que pode ser um ótimo momento de discussão sobre as ações de ciência cidadã em nossos ecossistemas aquáticos continentais. Traga sua pesquisa para as discussões desta sessão, submetendo seu trabalho à SIL. Abstract: Lakes, streams & wetlands are widely ignored by scientists, the public, and decision-makers. Yet, like the smallest blood vessels of an organism’s body, these headwaters are critically important for the healthy functioning and structuring of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. Climate change, land use intensification, and water withdrawals create a perfect storm for fragmenting and degrading those small waters—despite their importance to unique, endemic biota and for providing ecosystem services to humans (e.g., flood, drought, & disease mitigation, fisheries, wildlife viewing). It is critically important for scientists to engage not only other scientists—but the public as well. We must assist public school students and teachers in monitoring and assessing water quality and biota, including discussing the results with local decision-makers (private companies and local governments). Engaging school youths is a seed for citizen-science growth and effectiveness. Simplified quantitative field protocols and GoPro filming of reference & impaired streams provide pertinent and appropriate information for communicating with decision-makers. Engaging citizen groups regarding the human health and economic benefits of stream rehabilitation provides information on the ecosystem services offered by healthy streams and riparian communities. With the assistance of our coauthors, we will present global research examples of the values and threats to those aquatic ecosystems together with alternatives for communicating that information to the public and decision-makers.
