Deep Sea Collections: Public Engagement and Citizen Scientists with Greg Rouse - Exploring Ethics

11/9/2022; 54 minutes

Ever wonder what lives in the deepest parts of the ocean? Curious how many species of fish swim under the waves? Collections like those at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO) are a way for everyone to engage and understand the world underwater. Greg Rouse, curator of the Benthic Invertebrate Collection at SIO, shares how collections can effectively communicate with the public and make science accessible to all. He also discusses how programs like SeadragonSearch, a community-based research initiative with a mission to collect data about wild seadragon populations across Australia through underwater photography, can encourage citizen scientists and enable new discoveries.
