The Society for Marine Mammalogy’s Education Committee updates and monitors the Wikipedia articles for each marine mammal species. SMM is looking for student curators to assist with fact checking, editing, and updating marine mammal fact pages. This is a great volunteer opportunity for students who would like practice conducting thorough literature reviews, as well as a way to network with other marine mammal experts. We currently have over 40 students participating, and are hoping to expand the team.
Most of our students are in graduate school. Students should have interest in gaining literature review skills, and will need to learn how to find and cite scientific sources. If you are interested, please contact email@example.com for more information.
