Florida Citizen Science suggestions

At a recent LEEF (League of Environmental Educators in Florida) retreat, the topic of citizen science projects and apps came up so I thought I'd share them here:
Gopher tortoise app: With your help, FWC will be able to better document where gopher tortoises are living within our Florida communities, and how we can work together to protect them. 
IveGot1: Easy species reporting of invasive plants and animals that captures your current location and allows you to submit an image of your sightings.
Kite Sight: A citizen science app for the reporting of Swallow Tail Kites (Elanoides forficatus)- this is an Android only download.
I just found a site that has a post for a bunch of other citizen science apps too.
And a site that brings together Citizen Science and the Classroom, check out this Educator's page with info on World Water Monitoring Challenge, School of Ants, Project Budburst and others.

Time to go exploring!
