My Science! My Conch! is a nationwide citizen-science project going on now throughout The Bahamas! Communities and schools are getting involved in the effort to collect important scientific data and learn more about that giant, delicious, sea snail we all love, the Queen Conch.

Why Citizen Science? Why Conch?
Do you know enough about your favorite food? Citizen science or science conducted by citizens, is a great way for communities to learn more about the value of their natural resources. Participants in MSMC will get hands on experience in the collection of scientific data that will help fishery managers make more informed decisions about one of the most important fisheries in The Bahamas, the Queen Conch fishery. And you’ll become the expert!
