Secchi Phytoplankton Measurements
This public science project measures the amount of phytoplankton, minute organisms at the very start of the marine food chain, currently residing in the world’s oceans. Scientists fear the population of the microscopic beings is in decline due to rising sea temperatures and, if true, that could have consequences for every aspect of marine life. The project is being spearheaded by Plymouth University’s Marine Institute, which hopes to build a map of the oceans that charts the seasonal and annual changes of phytoplankton from now and into the future.

The Great Annual Fish Count
Organized by the Reef Environmental Education Foundation and held in July each year, the GAFC gets divers and snorkelers involved in documenting fish diversity and population trends. The project aims to engage the public community in the status of the marine environments they love, educate people about science and the environment, and provide useful data to researchers and policy makers. Field School also participates in the year-round volunteer fish monitoring program in addition to the main event hosted in July.

The eBird project was developed by the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the National Audubon Society. This interactive online program engages the public in tracking bird habitat and species abundance. As Field School's main base of operations is located on bird migratory pathways, we are able to contribute valuable data on crucial bird habitat and population status.
