The Marine and Coastal Ecology Research Center (MCERC) is a non-profit (501c3) organization dedicated to protecting and conserving healthy and sustainable marine and coastal ecosystems.
MCERC citizen scientists are amongst our most valuable resources. The potential contributions to add valuable scientific data for research is immeasurable. There are several long-term research projects which include a significant contribution from people who are willing to participate by sharing observations, images and videos, and volunteering their time.
The excitement of actively participating in data collection is contagious. New citizen scientists are contributing hours of valuable research effort in person and through MCERC smartphone apps.
MCERC Puerto Rico Humpback Whale Project, MCERC Dominican Republic Marine Mammal Biodiversity Project, MCERC Turks and Caicos Islands Marine Biodiversity Project, and the MCERC Manatee Citizen Science Project.
MCERC professional development goals include providing fledgling scientists and university students with courses that often earn credit hours through independent study at their university.
Please consider sponsoring a program, project, or student.
