Monitoring of Wildlife: from individual behaviours to global distributions - ZSL Scientific Meeting

Learn how technology aids the observation and monitoring of wildlife in new ways and in difficult and remote habitats that previously made population assessments extremely difficult.

Environmental change is likely to have an ever-increasing influence on the ecology and survival of animals, yet many of the species which are of greatest conservation concern are wide-ranging and live in remote areas and are, therefore, extremely difficult to observe.

Information on animal movements, species numbers and wider distributions is critical for our understanding of species responses to environmental threats and the remote monitoring of animals is a growing sector of conservation science.

In the course of this meeting, we will introduce the audience to a range of approaches that biologists are using to solve the many logistical and technical problems associated with wildlife monitoring and present exciting new information which provides insight into wildlife populations and improves our chances of understanding and mitigating the impacts of the increasing future threats they face.

Review of remote monitoring;
Tagging, using id tags and archival tags – marine vertebrates;
Monitoring using cameras – from pattern recognition to camera traps; and
Global tracking of animals – global movements of individuals and global databases.

Organised by Chris Carbone, Tom Hart, Ben Collen and Marcus Rowcliffe, Institute of Zoology, ZSL.
