As young scientists, we work towards enhancing our species’ understanding of the natural world. As naturalists, we have developed skills that allow us to interpret nature. As educators, it is our responsibility to share our experiences and knowledge – not just among the scientific community, but with society as a whole. Through these roles, we have cultivated a unique perspective on global biodiversity and the challenges it faces. RACERS is a collaborative project dedicated to sharing our perspectives, our experiences and our discoveries with the world.
