Regular December Meeting: Marketing Nature and the Rise of Citizen Science

December 9 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The main speaker will be Dave Ireland.

Marketing Nature and the Rise of Citizen Science

Dave is new to Atlantic Canada and is excited to listen and learn. Previously, Dave was Managing Director of Natural History at the Royal Ontario Museum and a founding member of iNaturalist Canada. He is passionate about biodiversity conservation and science communication. He will tell three stories, weaving his past and present experiences together in an informative, engaging and entertaining talk. Dave will ultimately suggest that the public will not support what they don’t understand, and citizen science may play a key role in bridging this gap.

Dave Ireland is a Project Manager with the Atlantic Canada ENGO Community and an advisor to iNaturalist Canada.
