exploring the modern world of citizen-science

filmmaker & Explorer

Follow me on my journey to document the new world of modern citizen-science and its contribution to conservation. What started as a simple beach debris survey down the coast of Washington has taken me to remote volcanic islands in the Alaskan Aleutians as well as joining the hunt for invasive species in the Salish Sea.

fieldwork

We’re currently in training, learning to both identify the Western Red Cedar and how to properly take core sample from the tree.

timber tracking

-- January 2020 --

The outdoor community is well positioned to collect tree tissue samples from far-flung locations on a large scale across each species’ geographic range. Hiking, mountain biking, backcountry skiing, rock climbing, whitewater kayaking, and other activities bring our volunteers to places few others venture.

This information will power new tools to reveal the origin of any sample of timber––taking away illegal loggers’ ability to sneak poached trees into the world’s wood supply.

THERE’S A REVOLUTION HAPPENING IN SCIENCE. AND NOW, MORE THAN EVER, YOU CAN BE PART OF IT.

Costa Rica: Puntarenas

After a long grueling journey from Seattle, we finally arrived in Costa Rica. Little did I know the hurdles were far from over. Luckily we had packed our sense of humor which went far in helping us to keep our perspective as we attempt to navigate our way out of San Juan and westward to Puntarenas. 

This is the first of a 3 part special report.
