Meet Our Newest Citizen Scientist, Cameron Letnes

By Jay T. Cullen

Our newest citizen scientist is 11-year-old Cameron Letnes who has been working alongside Cheryl Paavola of Northwest Community College in Prince Rupert British Columbia.

Cameron has been working on a number of science projects this summer. Not, only has she been working to collect seawater samples for Fukushima InFORM but she was also surveying for the invasive European Green Crab which is playing havoc with our native crab species along the BC coast. She says her favourite part of all of this work is learning how to use the various pieces of scientific equipment, especially the salinity refractometer.

The InFORM project can’t thank our citizen science volunteers enough for their hard work and dedication.  Without their efforts our coastal seawater monitoring program would not be possible.
