Sanctuary-Based Citizen Science Opportunities

Volunteers in the marsh at Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary

Projects On Hold 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all sanctuary-based citizen science projects and volunteer opportunities have been temporarily suspended.

Our wildlife sanctuaries around the state are living laboratories  where scientists, naturalists, and volunteers monitor and measure a wide range of natural occurrences from stranded sea turtles to osprey migration to salamander counts.
