'My name is Rina 

I am a PhD student at the University of York.  I am doing a project on Environmental Monitoring as Participatory Science. For this project we would like to tap in the experiences of community members who are already involved in voluntary environmental monitoring through questionnaires
 and interviews. This experience can be of any type, from monitoring bird activities to being active in recording species on the nature reserve.

 Understanding people's motivations to volunteer in these kinds of activities will be very useful; we are particularly interested in the difficulties in getting people involved in such activities.'
