Campfires & Science is a new and growing community of people who head outdoors, light a campfire, and share knowledge. We lead regular trips into the wilderness to support scientific research and provide hands-on learning about how to do research.
Anyone can contribute to science, whatever your age or experience. Observation and data collection is the core of the scientific method. Some of the simple research we do is survey work, looking at what is there. We are also leading a new exciting project to use environmental DNA to look for which critically endangered animals are living in certain areas.
This work can have an amazing impact - helping understand how to protect threatened habitats and unique biodiversity, ensuring it remains with us for generations to come.
