North Atlantic Aquatic Connectivity Collaborative

Get Involved

Please contact the coordinator for your state to find out how to participate in the Collaborative.

Anyone is welcome to volunteer to survey crossings under the following conditions:

  • You must work or volunteer with an organized regional group.
  • You can assist a lead observer, become a certified lead observer, or become a certified coordinator.
    Please see the Collaborative's Roles for a description of positions and certification requirements.
  • All certified observers and coordinators must participate in indoor and outdoor training and pass an online test before starting to assess crossings.

Please note that although anyone may view or export data, only certified lead observers and coordinators can enter data into the database.
