New Technology and Wildlife Conservation

New Technology and Wildlife Conservation

In recent years conservationists and ecologists have increasingly used new technology as a vital tool for researching and monitoring the species, habitats and landscapes that form the core of their work. The use of mobile global positioning systems (GPS) and data collection devices (such as flow meters) have allowed researchers to get real time data from the field for many years, but at the centre of this work is the need for researchers to go directly to the study site to set up and dismantle the equipment in the field.
