Citizen Scientists Use Apps for a Cleaner Earth

Jun 29, 2016

See. Snap. Click.

That’s the basis behind a revolutionary new concept that is helping scientists all over the world with their research.

Often the most time consuming and expensive part of a scientific study is the day-to-day collection of data. Observations on a massive scale are critical to understanding ecosystem and climate patterns, but collecting that information can also be prohibitively expensive.

Most scientists don’t have the resources to travel the world collecting information, so a new generation of technology-enabled ‘citizen scientists’ are contributing in a mighty way. A citizen scientist can be anyone with a smartphone; it’s a crowd-sourcing way for amateurs to help with research.

Two apps that are leading the charge in the citizen scientist movement are iNaturalist and Marine Debris Tracker.

Alaska to France: Otters Reach Océanopolis, Thanks to FedEx

Jun 16, 2016

Océanopolis, the oceans discovery park in Brest, called on FedEx Express, the world’s largest express transportation company and a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., to transport male sea otters about one year old from the care unit at the SeaLife Center in Seward, Alaska to Paris.  It is one of the few U.S. sites authorized to export this species worldwide, including in the United States.

The affected animals are young Pacific sea otters who were injured and orphaned but have recovered.  However, they cannot be released into the wild.

In close cooperation with the Alaska care unit teams and those at Océanopolis in Brest, FedEx Express organized the transfer of the otters from Anchorage to Paris free of charge.  Transported via McDonnell Douglas MD11 freighters, the animals made a first stop at the FedEx international hub in Memphis, Tennessee, then a second at the hub at Roissy Charles de Gaulle.

Jun 6, 2016

On any given night, more than 500,000 Americans find themselves homeless. Many people take for granted having enough to eat, a place to stay and adequate clothing to wear. It isn’t until you are without these things that you can begin to understand the pain that comes with it.

Ametruis Knox, a FedEx Express ramp manager who has been with the company for nearly 20 years, can relate to the hardships of homelessness. She was once homeless growing up in Philadelphia.
