Congratulations and thanks for taking this on.
This is the right time for a reboot of this project, given the
availability of high quality openly licensed satellite data, donated
Aerial  and   crowd sourced UAV / Balloon/ Kite mapping imagery.

Will this be a free to submit service so citizens can participate
easily ( http://publiclab.org/ ) ?

I am looking forward to see it live :-)

If you save the living environment, the biodiversity that we have left,
you will also automatically save the physical environment, too. But If
you only save the physical environment, you will ultimately lose both.

1) Don’t drive species to extinction

2) Don’t destroy a habitat that species rely on.

3) Don’t change the climate in ways that will result in the above.
