Hopefully the developers will soon realize that, unlike pictures, chronicles need to be presented in chronological order :'( :'( :'(

New Ecology Project - For Review

Hi there,

Please help us test a potential new project - Sedgwick Reserve Animal Pursuit

This study investigates the impact of drought and climate change on key terrestrial species at the 5896-acre Sedgwick Reserve in southern California.

The project is a collaborative effort between University of California Santa Barbara's Computer Science Department and the UC Natural Reserve System. Their goals are to make advancements in trail camera deployment and image processing to help climate scientists better understand how drought affects wildlife.

This project has been built by the researchers themselves, using the Zooniverse Project Builder, so we need your help making sure it's up to the standards of an official Zooniverse project. Try it out now at www.zooniverse.org/projects/ckrintz/sedgwick-reserve-animal-pursuit and give us your feedback via this form https://goo.gl/forms/haVg6mNUwkpuRw2L2 (which you can also reach by clicking the link on the project itself).

Grant & the Zooniverse Team

Snapshot Wisconsin Season 5

Greetings,
 
We're happy to announce a new season of Snapshot Wisconsin! Season 5 features wildlife photos from Fall 2016 and Winter 2016/2017. We've also made a few changes to the classification tool: 
 
-       A "No animals present" checkbox to make classifying faster when no animals are found in a photo sequence.
-       A zoom tool to make tricky classifications easier.
-       New elk categories that mimic the deer categories (antlered, antlerless, and head not visible).
 
Log on now at www.snapshotwisconsin.org to test out these new functions and help us classify new photos of wildlife!
 
Thanks for all you do,

Christina and the Snapshot Wisconsin Team

26 New Candidates Discovered!

Hi there,

Great work last week, you helped discover 26 new supernova candidates. There was a lot of data to get through last week and we really appreciate it.

This week there are about 4000 new images that we need you help to classify.

Get hunting right now for supernovae at www.zooniverse.org/projects/dwright04/supernova-hunters

Happy hunting!

Darryl and the Supernova Hunters Team

Too true. That talk about 'Faux Historians' still haunts me. Can't help thinking that there cold be a lot of very useful ideas ready to come out of those books if only they were in chronological order  :-\
