In the late 1990s, Julia Parrish started the Coastal Observation and Seabird Survey Team or COASST. Julia says: “We train people to go out to their local beach and survey it. They are looking for birds that have literally washed in on the last tide. COASST offers people a chance to learn more about the birds. And that I think is the essence of citizen science.”
