EO4wildlife main objective is to bring large number of multidisciplinary scientists such as biologists, ecologists and ornithologists around the world to collaborate closely together while using European Sentinel Copernicus Earth Observation more heavily and efficiently.

Monica Morrison's insight:
"The majority of studies were undertaken to address specific management questions; rarely were these data used beyond their original intent. We estimate that approximately half (~500) of all animal telemetry projects undertaken remained unpublished, a similar proportion were not discoverable via online resources, and less than 8.8% of all animals tagged and tracked had their data stored in a discoverable and accessible manner."
An interview with the managing director of Ewaso Lions explores the nexus of communities and technology in human-carnivor conflict and wildlife conservation. This approach includes novel mobile phone-based systems to bring a larger group of stakeholders into the conservation effort and working with Silicon Valley entrepreneurs to develop a new predator deterrent light system.
Animals wearing new tagging and tracking devices give a real-time look at their behavior and at the environmental health of the planet, say research associates at the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute in the June 12 issue of Science magazine.
Last December marked an exciting milestone for Panthera with the distribution of our new and enhanced camera trap model, which consists of a remarkably energy-efficient camera that snaps photos of passing wildlife in just three-tenths of a second. Given that wild tigers are very elusive and increasingly rare, these camera traps serve as a par

... to maximise the understanding and uptake of remote sensing-based techniques and products by the ecological community (both theoretical and practical), prioritizing findings that advance the scientific basis of ecology and conservation science; and to identify ecological challenges that might direct development of future remote sensors and data products.
A vantage point in space could prove invaluable in documenting Earth's biodiversity and preventing its loss, experts say.
Monica Morrison's insight:
"Typically, scientists estimate the biodiversity in an ecosystem by tallying up the number of individuals of different species in a specific area and plugging them into mathematical models. But these results tend to be limited and highly variable."
DURHAM, N.C. -- Scientists estimate that we are losing species at 1,000-times the natural background rate. While new technologies are improving conservation efforts by making it easier, faster and cheaper to monitor threatened species, these technologies alone cannot conserve biodiversity, a new multi-institutional study finds.
Critiques of the RAPID rhino camera and collar highlight the need for designers and conservation managers to work together more closely on anti—poaching technologies and to implement devices that fit into existing protection strategies.
Connecting animal telemetry and spatial conservation: A CEED Workshop (University of Queensland, February 2015) “I want one!” A juvenile southern elephant seal (Mirounga leonina) equipped with a state-of-the-art CTD- SRDL (Conductivity – Temperature Depth, Satellite-Relay Data Logger)...
Scientists from the WCS (Wildlife Conservation Society), NASA, and other organizations have partnered to focus global attention on the contribution of satellites to biodiversity conservation in a recently released study entitled 'Ten Ways Remote Sensing Can Contribute to Conservation,' featured in the ...
