Why do I need to give you my name and email?
We ask for your name and email address so that we have contact details associated with your research data. You will only be contacted if an expert from the Natural History Museum or Earthwatch Institute wishes to find out more about your survey, for example if it is an exciting or unexpected result.
If you agree, we will also use your email to let you know about other citizen science projects and activities that are taking place. You can stop receiving this information at any time by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you chose to answer the optional demographic questions, these data are anonymised and stored separately to your survey results. Collecting demographic information about the people who take part in our surveys helps us to understand whether we are serving the broadest possible audience.
How will my data be managed?
Your images and associated data will be stored by Indicia, an open source online wildlife recording toolkit, for the duration of this project. Your results will be analysed by the Natural History Museum and Earthwatch Institute for research purposes only. The data that you upload will also be made publicly available via the Museum’s Data Portal. Only the research data will be visible on this website - none of your personal information will be shown. Sharing environmental data in this way ensures they are as useful as possible, both for research and for decision making about protecting the natural environment.
Earthworm Watch is a collaboration between Earthwatch Institute (Europe) and the Natural History Museum in London
