Invasive?) • Current and historical population trends • Current or potential future threats that may affect populations of this specific species (or if it is invasive, describe how it may threaten native species) • Describe efforts that are currently in place to help conserve this specific species (or control this species if it is non-native/invasive) Conclusion: Your conclusion should be structured like a triangle: discuss more specific details of the Molopo project and end with a broad overview of future research directions. Your conclusion should address the following questions: • Did your participation in the Snapshot Molopo project give you a deeper understanding and appreciation for diversity?

Can citizen science be an effective tool for scientific research?
