New Zooniverse Crowdsourcing Project Wants YOU – To Look at Cat Pictures

We know what’s up: the Internet is not a “series of tubes,” it’s a collection of cat pictures. And Zooniverse needs some help identifying those pictures in a new crowdsourcing project. “A critical part of protecting big cats and their landscapes is documenting the presence and behavior of wild cats using camera-traps. Every year, Panthera’s motion-activated cameras collect hundreds of thousands of wildlife images. With your help, we can analyze these photos to identify the animals shown, enabling us to track wild cat population trends over time and determine what conservation actions are needed to better protect these species.”
