#Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge: Community Choice Honorees

Join us as we count down the WILDLABS community's honorees in the first-ever #Tech4Wildlife Community Choice Awards!

Every year, we honor our #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge participants by sharing our top honorees whose impressive, impactful, and innovative projects demonstrate how technology is transforming the conservation field. We've seen tech users and makers from around the world, working in every possible environment and with every type of tool, and the stories shared in our past #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenges have reached over 1.5 million viewers, and even been featured in the New York Times.

This year, in addition to our Top Honorees being selected by a panel of voters from WILDLABS' leading partner conservation organizations, we've also welcomed our community to choose the entries that best capture the spirit of the WILDLABS community. Your votes have highlighted stories and projects that are primed to reach wider audiences around the world and show them the vast potential of conservation technology, and this collection of honorees reflects the tools, ideas, and perspectives that are significant to other conservation tech users and makers at this very moment. While research like our State of Conservation Technology program captures formal data on the needs and interests of the WILDLABS community going forward, this informal data surprisingly captured by the Community Choice Awards - perhaps unsurprisingly - reflects many of the same needs and interests, particularly in terms of in-demand tools like AI, which you'll see highlighted throughout many featured entries!

Community members came together to vote across five categories. And the entries you've selected, from small-scale local projects to comprehensive conservation efforts, capture the depth, variety, and ingenuity of the WILDLABS community's collective work. You'll find many familiar faces within this honorees circle, along with a surprising number of new participants whose work captured your attention and spoke to your interests and experiences. 

Read on to see who the WILDLABS community has chosen as our first-ever #Tech4Wildlife Community Choice 1st Place winners, Runner-Ups, and Honorees, and visit our #Tech4Wildlife Collection to see more highlights from this year's eighth annual #Tech4Wildlife Photo Challenge.

Tech in Action

Our Tech in Action honorees showcase technology, whether innovative or tried-and-true, being deployed or used in the field. Our community voted on entries that not only capture the effectiveness of these tools, but also put the excitement of working with conservation technology on display. 

Our winning entry from Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative grabbed the attention of our voters with their comically up-close look at how wildlife interact with camera traps, a staple in the conservation tech community. And our runner-up, Icas - Wild Animal Conservation Institute, also highlighted camera traps along with telemetry, this time highlighting how conservation tech can help us study rare wildlife in noninvasive ways that previously would’ve been impossible. 

Two other honorees in the category, Alison Forde and FieldKit, showed the process of deploying tech in the field in two vastly different environments, while honoree Roland Kays showed off one of the most rapidly evolving and frequently highlighted tools, AI, in action with his video on counting bat populations.

Returning champion Andrew Digby took the top Community Choice Award in this category for his continuing work with the endangered kakapo population of New Zealand, where conservation tech allows for comprehensive monitoring and care for each and every surviving bird. Another returning champion, BearID, took the runner-up position as they discussed how their popular AI method for individual bear identification can empower regional conservation efforts. 

Our honorees continued the AI-heavy trend of this year’s Community Choice Awards, with Vic Shao-Chih Chiang discussing the need to make this vital tool accessible to local and underserved communities. Klaus Thymann grabbed the attention of our marine conservation community for highlighting how specially-designed cameras can help map and monitor vulnerable seafloor habitats impacted by trawling, and RSPB Science shared their efforts to monitor bird flu impacts on seabird populations through the use of drones.

1st Place: Andrew Digby

Last week we translocated 4 critically endangered #kakapo back to mainland NZ - the first time in living memory. One way we’ll keep a close eye on them is through their smart transmitters connected to a data network - as on other kākāpō islands. #Tech4Wildlife #conservation
Photo credit: Lydia Uddstrom
The data networks enable us to remotely monitor each #kakapo’s activity (think FitBit!). Reduced activity can tell us if they’re sick. We recently discovered several cases of the disease “crusty bum” like this - as per Egilsay and Morehu. #Tech4Wildlife
Photo credit: Brodie Philp
The @docgovtnz Electronics Team is upgrading the transmitters and data networks to allow us to track more #kakapo and change transmitters less often. This is part of our strategy to use #technology to ‘step back’ from intensive management. #Tech4Wildlife 
Another way we’ll track #kakapo at the new mainland site is with a drone. The@WildlifeDrones1system provides real-time locations for up to 40 individuals simultaneously, and will help track movements following release. #Tech4Wildlife #conservation
Finally, we’ll also use GPS tags to track #kakapo at Maungatautari. These won’t give us “live” locations, but after capture will show home ranges and movements following release - all useful in determining the suitability of this new site. #Tech4Wildlife #conservation #parrots

Runner-up: BearID Project

For @WILDLABSNET #Tech4Wildlife week this year we wanted to tell you a little more about ⚡️The whys of the BearID Project⚡️ Why do the whys matter? Tech4Wildlife that is rooted in solving real-world problems holds the most potential for application to conservation.
Back to the beginning… When the@BearID_Projectbegan we wanted to develop a tool that could ID individual grizzly bears for behavioural research. PhotoID can facilitate individual-level analyses, but most bears don’t have markings that are easy to ID from camera traps.
We looked towards facial recognition and machine learning to assess whether models could accurately use bear faces for re-ID - a method currently used by human brains but is perhaps subjective. Could ML provide a more objective approach?
We soon began to hear from folks interested in using BearID for more broad ecological questions, e.g. population densities & movement. Camera traps are ideal for assessing wild-ranging, elusive sp. and are cost-effective. Perhaps this tool could help to address broader Q's?
Soon after we began working with the Nanwakolas Council & its member-First Nations guardian programs. The Nations were interested in using ecological tools to gather information on grizzly bear distribution, habitat use & movements. This was a turning point for the project.
We began to learn more about policy surrounding grizzly bear conservation and associated land use – and the demands placed on Indigenous Nations to restore and steward these landscapes while retaining economic opportunities and sovereignty.
If we could work together to develop a tool that targets a priority species, gathers accurate & objective () data that can help inform decision-making, do this in a way that is timely, while building capacity = WIN for people and bears!
This is one of our priority whys. A solution that works for people & wildlife, which is not mutually exclusive. Over the past yr we have been working towards this goal; training models using camera trap data and building new collaborations to get us there. Stay tuned!

BearID Project focuses on using machine learning and face recognition to identify individual bears from remote camera trap imagery. The software tool aims to provide a new survey technique for researchers and wildlife monitoring, with broad applications for scientists, managers, governments, industries, and community scientists. The approach can be applied to other species beyond bears, supporting global conservation efforts.

Honoree: Klaus Thymann


In 2020 an interdisciplinary team of ocean advocates discovered an abundance of corals in Jammerbugten, an area off the Danish coast currently under heavy pressure from international beam trawling. Due to strong currents and low visibility most of the year, the Jammerbugten seafloor is notoriously hard to map and photograph. The discovery of corals, however, highlighted the need for an easy accessible, low-cost and low impact way of monitoring the state of the seafloor habitats. The project team designed and constructed a simple, yet sturdy drop camera, which can be employed from the side of local fishing boats and thus also can be used by the local community.

The high quality video footage and its metadata has been able to provide evidences of the traces of beam trawling currently threatening the fragile seafloor ecosystem, as well as providing direct visual evidence of the rich habitats, otherwise not visible, for marine biologists to monitor. The drop camera has been tested in several iterations, to make sure it leaves the least impact on the seafloor while also being able to withstand the heavy currents of the Western Sea and provides a simple way for biologist and the local coastal fishing community alike to engage with mapping and conservation practices. #Tech4Wildlife @WILDLABS Community

Community Science

Our Community Science honorees showcase how technology can help us connect people to conservation efforts, whether through engaging with local communities and building capacity for tech work, sharing wildlife and conservation stories with audiences around the world, or allowing people to connect with nature in their own lives. This category is a crucial reminder that wildlife conservation is not only about flagship species and large-scale efforts: it’s about all of us finding our own role to play in conservation with the skills and tools that are accessible to us. 

Ostdrossel took first place in this category for videos of local birds and unique views inside of their nests. Likewise, runner-up Suzanne Dickerson also took home an honor for camera trap footage of the unique behavior of local raccoon families and their interactions in a space shared by many other species. Our community may work with diverse species around the globe, including the endangered species that readily and easily capture the attention of the general public - but these two entries placing so high within the Community Choice Awards reflects that we cannot underestimate the power of using technology to engage people with the nature that exists around them. 

Our additional honorees, Wolf Fish and Kigosy Exavery, highlighted the importance of building capacity in conservation tech and training future leaders in the field, while BirdsyTV offered footage of how accessible AI can empower anyone to understand their local species better.
