Imagine a world where researchers and active citizens work together to share information on when water is healthy and when it needs help. We want everyone to have the tools they need to protect waterways!
Water Rangers website allows anyone to discover existing data, report issues like algae blooms and record observations of their lakes, streams and rivers. It also gives tools (like our new testkits and challenges!) to groups so they can mobilize volunteers to make an impact on their watersheds.
Water Rangers is currently being used by more than 50 groups located in Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Alabama and Florida. We have over 17,000 observations from different sources, including one indigenous community, two municipalities, three schools, three conservation authorities and ten NGOs.
Some of our features: location-based observations, issues & photos; mini graphs so you can see trends; ceate groups, filter the map; and so much more coming soon!
