Abstract: "By engaging citizens to provide monitoring, the number of eyes, ears and minds can be greatly expanded. This is already occurring in hundreds of locales. School classes, clubs, and individuals have been trained in techniques for a variety of monitoring processes with very positive results. The important next step is to reduce the barriers between scientist and the citizen monitor, to provide the training and support for increasing the scope and the number of citizen monitors, and to convince governments that it is the wise and proper thing to do. The citizen/volunteer can and should play a very important and expanding role in protection of the Northern Commons whose well being is so vital to us all."
