Hi Frank - welcome to the community and so kind of you to offer your data skills. In case it helps there is a free grant sheet on WildHub that lists about 200 funding opportunities. If you found others to add to the list you could give me a shout and we could work together to expand the list perhaps?
thanks a lot for sharing this - super useful
NIce one Ussi! Thanks so much for helping build this community!
It rather depends where you are, but if the project is in NW Europe, I recommend the tools developed by the OPAL project (https://www.imperial.ac.uk/opal/). While the project itself is, I think, over (I'd be delighted if I am wrong on this), the tools are free and are both easy to use and remarkably powerful at measuring biodiversity (https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1470160X18308252). One of the big pluses is that you can get local volunteers and even school children to help out. We intend to produce versions of the freshwater pack in northern European languages (Polish, German, Dutch and potentially Czech) for a project we're working on and will make these freely available once we have field-tested them.
thanks a lot David. i like this approach - but (I think) I am looking for a more techy and less people-power intensive survey solution. But will think about it some more
welcome Susan - look forward to learning more about your work.
Interesting - thanks for sharing this!
