The Mosquito Census: Tracking New Zealand’s Mosquitoes Using Citizen Science Public
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
To improve the availability of ecological data, we designed and recommended a submission process and accompanying website for the Mosquito Census, a project for the National Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa that promotes citizen science and biosecurity. Our website will facilitate the submission of physical specimens and provide scientists with a database to archive and access mosquito distribution and ecology data. We conducted surveys and interviews to inform our suggestions for efficient specimen submission and future outreach programs to improve mosquito and biosecurity literacy.
