PORBIOTA helps to validate citizen science biodiversity data

PORBIOTA provides a platform that connects academia, the public administration, business corporations and civil society.

Through iNaturalist/Biodiversity4All, PORBIOTA aims to promote the engagement of citizen scientists in the collection of biodiversity data from Portugal and its EEZ, and to promote the curation of observations by the vast network of professional scientists involved in this research infrastructure.

The iNaturalist/Biodiversity4All will thus help furthering the mission of PORBIOTA, which is to foster a national agenda for biodiversity and ecosystems research, making available high-quality knowledge needed to meet societal challenges regarding environmental protection and sustainability.
