Scientists can’t be everywhere, but by tapping into data collected by the public, researchers can get troves of information they’d never be able to collect by themselves. In the January/February issue of The Wildlife Professional, our cover story looks at how citizen science is leading to new advances in wildlife research and management. Read on for an essay by 2020 Aldo Leopold Memorial Award recipient John Organ on the greatest challenge facing wildlifers today, and an introduction to TWS’ new CEO, Ed Arnett. Contributed articles explore the Starkey Project’s policy-shaping research, predator hunting, the Interstate Wildlife Violator Compact and advice for getting a job in a conservation organization.
