Please indicate the mandate/goals/activities of your organization/project.: 
Our Citizen Science Group has two sets of goals and activities. First, we use collaborative mapping to monitor local wildlife populations eg hedgehogs in the Felixstowe area. For this work, we use QGIS software. Our second goal is to conduct a broad range of analysis on local wildlife data collected among the members of Felixstowe's Community Nature Reserve. For this data analysis, we use R and Excel. However, we soon hope to start working in CoCalc.
How are you supporting the idea of citizen science through various channels or activities?: 
We use Facebook, Twitter and our Citizen Science Group's website. We also share our news through local magazines in our part of the UK. We also share our results with the Suffolk Biodiversity Information Service and the UK's National Biodiversity Network. We also have our first research paper which has already been accepted for publication next month. Finally, we use neighbour-to-neighbour communication to encourage each other within our group.
