The WILDLABS Virtual Meetup Series is a program of webinars for community members and wider partners to discuss emerging topics in conservation technology and leverage existing community groups for virtual exchange. The aim of the series is to bring leading engineers in the tech sector together with conservation practitioners to share information, identify obstacles, and discuss how to best move forward.
Season One of the series took place in late 2018, covering new data collection techniques through Networked Sensors for Security and Human-Wildlife Conflict (HWC) Prevention and Next-Generation Wildlife Tracking, and effective utilization of that information through Big Data in Conservation.
Season Two will run from April - June of 2019 and will explore different models for collaboration, the low-cost tools these approaches are producing, and what we can do with the data they’re generating. The three topics to be covered are Low-Cost Open-Source Solutions, Tools and Spaces for Collaboration, and Creative Approaches to Data-Driven Storytelling.
The first virtual meetup in Season Two will be held on Tuesday, April 9th from 2:00pm-3:00pm GMT / 10:00am-11:00am EDT,with an additional half hour for discussion at the end. Our speakers include Alasdair Davies, Founder of Arribada Initiative, David Lang, Co-Founder of OpenROV and Open Explorer, and Tanya Berger-Wolf, Co-Founder and Director of Wildbook.org. Their talks will be followed by open discussion and community exchange. To join, register here.
