Tracking Connections: Community Science
Time & Location
About the Event
Tracking can of course be meaningful as a practice and pastime in and of itself, but the local wildlife knowledge held by trackers- both new and experienced- can also inform wildlife conservation. This presentation will highlight examples of community science (aka citizen science) projects that are applying tracking knowledge towards habitat protection. From case studies, recent interviews and personal experience in New England and the Pacific Northwest, I'll share information about how to find or start a community science project, where to look for community partners and stakeholders, and tips on data collection and sharing. Presentation will be followed by 20 mins Q&A. This presentation is open to all but may be especially useful for: trackers looking for ideas and goals to direct your tracking efforts, organizations wanting to connect with trackers to inform conservation planning.
