Student Scientists on our Sanctuary Shores
LiMPETS is a citizen science program that monitors the coastal ecosystems of California and helps youth develop a scientific understanding of the ocean. LiMPETS monitors the biology in rocky intertidal and sandy beach ecosystems and aims to provide publicly accessible, scientifically sound, long-term data to inform marine resource management and the scientific community.
Effective Education Outcomes
Our partners at UC Davis published an article that profiles LiMPETS in the scientific journal Biological Conservation: “Youth-focused citizen science: Examining the role of environmental science learning and agency for conservation.”
