I am a PhD candidate at Colorado State University researching human-wildlife conflict. Myself and several collaborators from CSU are in the process of distributing a survey to evaluate tech performance and collaboration needs in the conservation community. We would love to get feedback on this from the Wildlabs community, given the active engagement and great experience of everyone here. More information and a survey link is below for anyone interested:
We are conducting a Conservation Technology Needs Assessment to identify how technologies are used, tested, and developed for conservation science and practice. Technology is an increasingly important tool for many conservation activities, and we are looking for feedback from practitioners, researchers, faculty, graduate students, and technology professionals that have worked with technology in a conservation setting. Our goal is to apply results of the needs assessment to help align future development with what conservation professionals need most to facilitate future conservation technology projects by highlighting common pitfalls and needs. Our plan is to compile results from this survey and publish it academically in an open-source journal.
This survey will take approximately 7 minutes to complete. To participate, please read the required consent information and follow the link below.
