One example of this trend is Project Noah– a tool that nature lovers can use to document local wildlife in their area, creating a platform that research groups can use to harness the power of citizen scientists. Players complete missions to photograph, tag, identify and learn about the plants and animals they see around them. the aggregation of this information allows people to compare notes, track sightings and provide key data to researchers on topics like invasive species and migration patterns. users can earn badges as they add to their findings, bringing a game element into the experience and promoting participation.
