Have fun testing the water!

Have fun testing the water!

(Theme 6 – Natural Capital, Theme 8 – Health)

Organization: Water Rangers

Timeline for Completion: Started 2015 Ongoing

Objective:

Our mission as Water Rangers is to build the tools to help citizens and scientists easily record and analyse water data so that they can use the data to learn about problems, share discoveries, and engage with their neighbours.

Who are the Water Rangers?
Water Rangers go out and get their hands dirty (and wet!) collecting water observations because they know it’s an integral part of protecting our beautiful ecosystems.

Water Rangers are helping more people deepen their understanding of water issues through affordable water testing. We believe that crowdsourcing water quality data through citizen science is a way to help scientists fill in gaps to achieve sustainable water monitoring. Together with our online open-data platform, we can offer people the tools to protect our waters!
