Your contribution counts and advances knowledge!
This citizen science project invites you to get involved in monitoring tick populations to increase scientific knowledge about their distribution in Canada. You can participate simply and gain valuable information by submitting tick photos to the eTick.ca website for professional identification. A simple protocol to follow is explained.
The tick identification results, combined with the data you provide (date and location of collection), are then displayed on a map, so that you can quickly view all submissions for one or more species, for the region and/or year of your choice.
Access to the platform is completely free and you can consult the data even without submitting photos.
This Bishop’s University research project is being conducted in collaboration with other Canadian universities and several provincial and federal public health agencies.
