Finding our way: On the sharing and reuse of animal telemetry data in Australasia. - PubMed - NCBI

Finding our way: On the sharing and reuse of animal telemetry data in Australasia. - PubMed - NCBI | Using Wildlife Survey Data | Scoop.it
Sci Total Environ. 2015 Nov 15;534:79-84. doi: 10.1016/j.scitotenv.2015.01.089. Epub 2015 Feb 7.
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 We estimate that approximately half (~500) of all animal telemetry projects undertaken remained unpublished, a similar proportion were not discoverable via online resources, and less than 8.8% of all animals tagged and tracked had their data stored in a discoverable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."

Warriors and wildlife: an interview with Paul Thomson of Ewaso Lions

Warriors and wildlife: an interview with Paul Thomson of Ewaso Lions | Using Wildlife Survey Data | Scoop.it
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.

Panthera Camera Trap Catches Poachers

Panthera Camera Trap Catches Poachers | Using Wildlife Survey Data | Scoop.it
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

Conservationists Want to Track Biodiversity — from Space

Conservationists Want to Track Biodiversity — from Space | Using Wildlife Survey Data | Scoop.it
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."

Using - And Sharing - New Technologies Is Key for Conservation

Using - And Sharing - New Technologies Is Key for Conservation | Using Wildlife Survey Data | Scoop.it
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.
