Thanks to our awesome intern Dylan MacArthur-Waltz for developing this section while on summer break from University!
Shout out: We thank the many researchers who put in long hours and dedicate their lives to helping us understand change within our ecological and human communities. If you'd like to help, consider working on a climate - citizen science project. Options are here.
