The main activity of the Felixstowe Citizen Science Group (FCSG) is to conduct impact analyses on the work of Felixstowe's Community Nature Reserve. In this article, we explain a recent example of that impact analysis. We also include the Python code which we used. In May 2020, we completed a different style of impact analysis. Both styles of analysis have their merits. We hope they help you.   

In addition to that primary focus on impact analysis, we also support our local agenda on the transition toward climate justice.

Most recently, we began a re-mapping project with a particular emphasis on promoting inclusiveness. 

Another recent project saw us investigate the foraging behaviour of four tit species within Felixstowe's Community Nature Reserve. In this article, we include the Python code which we used to do our data visualizations. We hope it helps with your own work. 

We also enjoy working with the R coding language. In this article, we locate some examples from our use of R alongside Systems Mapping, Force Field Analysis, Raster-Block Mapping, and Stake Holder Analysis.  

We love to learn from colleagues in order to improve what we do. Consequently, we like to think of ourselves as a Learning Organisation. In this article, we explore what that means within the context of Systems Thinking. The article also includes a reinforcing loop learning cycle, a Causal loop diagram which embeds reflective practice, and a systems map. 

Our Founder and Chair, Dr Adrian Cooper takes every opportunity to promote citizen science. Recent examples included his presentation to the Debenham Green Team (on 13 September 2023). 

We hope these resources help with your own citizen science!
