Unstudy space: Manatee Chat: Relax and help science!

https://www.zooniverse.org/projects/cetalingua/manatee-chat/classify

What is more relaxing than listening to the sound of manatees underwater? The Mantanee Chat Project aims to better understand manatee communication and it relies on volunteers (like you!) to help analyze sound recordings of manatees. You can begin analyzing right away, or walk through their brief interactive instructions that explains what you're listening for (https://cetalingua.com/data/manatee-chat-workflow-1-practice/77/). Brad, who takes care of our book repairs and makes sure books get nice colourful bindings, and a few other library staff have done a couple in the library and find them mesmerizing. Science thanks you!

This project is hosted on Zooniverse, which is a site dedicated to helping citizen science projects. It's also interesting to browse through their collection of ongoing projects.
