Want to help scientists find ways to protect butterflies, create a safe passage for wildlife and rid the oceans of microplastics? Well, if you’re up for the adventure, Gregg Treinish has got some work for you. With his nonprofit Adventure Scientists, he’s empowering everyone to volunteer and collect data and specimens, all while hiking, biking, diving and skiing. Using this large, crowd-collected dataset, he’s giving scientists the tools they need to tackle major environmental and health issues.
