How are you performing research on Citizen Science, taking part in Citizen Science activities and/or supporting Citizen Science?: 
Hundreds of thousands of people around the world contribute bird observations to the Cornell Lab each year, gathering data on a scale once unimaginable. Scientists use these data to determine how birds are affected by habitat loss, pollution, disease, and climate change. They trace bird migration and document long-term changes in bird numbers, creating species-specific conservation plans and targeted action to help birds find the resources they need to survive.
