SquirrelMapper | Nature Nation

Each week, we feature a worthy citizen science project or nature news segment from around the world. This week’s is SquirrelMapper.

There are a few ways you can participate with SquirrelMapper: observe, classify, and my favorite, play! Their game “Find the squirrel” allows viewers 15 seconds to spot a squirrel hidden in each scene.
