The current rate of biodiversity loss is reaching catastrophic proportions. We need to take urgent action and for that, we need to collect as much data as possible across Europe, building solid reference libraries for biodiversity research.
BGE is delivering new discoveries and innovative applications to protect and restore biodiversity, but collecting data across an entire continent is an enormous endeavour. The contribution of citizen scientists is crucial to success.
