ECO Health Report Cards

Our environmental report cards synthesize data from scientists and volunteers and convert it into an image-rich format that is easily accessible to a wide audience. Report cards also tap into a powerful human motivator: peer pressure. Civic leaders and community members can compare their grades with their neighbors, and we have learned that these comparisons lead to a desire for better environmental outcomes in their own backyard. For nearly two decades our team has worked both at the local level with river protection groups, and developed assessments of iconic ecosystems such as the Chesapeake Bay (USA) and the Great Barrier Reef (Australia). These environmental report cards have been used to catalyze improvements in ecosystem health, guide restoration efforts, and stimulate relevant research.
