Tracking Progress
Virtual Meetups Season 4

This season, we’re bringing together leading engineers, conservationists, and academics to explore the future of technology in movement ecology and ask where exactly investment is needed to catapult this field forward. 

The second meetup of Season 4 will explore the future of Data Analysis in Movement Ecology and will be held on Wednesday, May 11 at 4:00 PM BST / 11:00 AM EDT. We'll hear short talks from leading experts Sara Beery, Somayeh Dodge, Christen Fleming, and Mackenzie Mathis, and then open it up to questions and discussion with the community.
