In this paper, we offer an assessment of this increasingly prevalent model of environmental governance, which relies primarily upon self-funded volunteers to monitor and report environmental impacts. Civil society research appears to offer a promising way to gather environmental data at a time when government agencies are struggling to keep up with a rapidly expanding industry. It is therefore essential to understand the scope of these volunteer projects and to critically consider their role in the larger effort to gather environmental data.
