James Peters


James loves the ecclectic mix of birds, education, and web technology. Two years ago, James began envisioning a simple identification tool for people new to birding, BirdBrain. At the same time, he started to see how helpful a web-based community could be for birders, and left his job to pursue this potential full-time. James now oversees the development, marketing, and operations of Geobirds and it's parent company, providing community tracking solutions for companies wishing to add this functionality to their sites.

Citizen science, volunteer monitoring, participatory action research... this site supports organizers of all initiatives where public participants are involved in scientific research.
