Journey North Citizen Science: A Global Study of Wildlife Migration and Seasonal Change

Ten Hundred Words of Science I build things that look at tiny living things in the water, so that we can study where they live the most. This study is important because these tiny living things help larger living things, all the way to land, to us. Now we know very little about these tiny living things. On land, the question is, where does this tree or that animal grow the most? What does it eat? In water, we also ask, do these tiny living things live deep, or near the top? The things we build have computers, are very good with numbers, and move around without getting tired. They take many such drinks of water, over many hours, over a large place, and bring them back to us to look into. The things we build, now knowing more, continues bringing back water to us for us to study. — JD.
