Can citizen science reverse the extinction of experience?

Summary:
Opportunities for people to interact with nature have declined over the past century, as many now live in urban areas and spend much of their time indoors. Conservation attitudes and behaviors largely depend on experiences with nature, and this 'extinction of experience' (EOE) is a threat to biodiversity conservation. Researchers now propose that citizen science, an increasingly popular way to integrate public outreach with data collection, can potentially mitigate EOE.
