The Biota Project

The Biota Project is a mixed-media science communication and outreach organization taking a grass roots approach for connecting underrepresented communities to symbiotic relationships in nature and society since 2013. This nonpartisan educational community empowerment organization bridges connections between science and research with community leaders and grassroots activists to promote mutual understanding, collaboration, and social change. They empower communities to ensure that research and education are accessible and equitable through research development, original content creation, communication strategies, and community outreach.
