Tech Tutors 2: What do you want to see?

After a successful first season, we are excited to be bringing you Tech Tutors: Season 2, the tutorial series that provides quick, practical, and interactive answers to the “how do I do that” questions of conservation tech.

Through short 30 minute tutorials followed by live Q&As, this series is a great chance to connect with experts and get advice on tricky tech topics, gather new DIY ideas, learn the best troubleshooting techniques, and find out what tools your friends in the WILDLABS community recommend for your latest projects.

We want to hear from the WILDLABS community: What tech questions do you want to see answered in Tech Tutors 2? Whether a S1 episode raised more questions (for example, “How do I use Portable Genomics in the Field” got you thinking about getting started with wildlife forensics), or there’s a new topic you want to learn about, we want to know!

Comment in the thread below, message me over WILDLABS or email [email protected].

We’re also looking for presenters. Submit this form and let us know what questions you could answer for our community.

We’re looking for presentations that provide the bite-sized, easy-to-understand building blocks the audience needs to try new conservation technology, enhance their research, or DIY a project for the first time.

You can view season one here, which covered topics including training your first machine learning model, repairing camera traps and scaling up acoustic surveys with Audiomoth.

Hi There,

Nice you opened up the agenda.

I want to see more things on how to build devices, from cases to connectivity. I would like to see something in particular (a hands-on with real things and applications): Satellite connectivity.

Something was mentioned on the wildlife drones episode, I would like to see more on that, from ready to use devices to boards to build your own devices, detailed things, including estimated costs for the services, coverage and the like, an easy to roadmap to implement those things would be nice.

Of course, I want to see more on drones, that would be interestering too, there is a lot of action by applying drones for wildlife care. I am paricularly interested in autonomous ones, I don't know if there is any advance on them.

Some specialists on image sensors would be also appreciated (infrared, non-military SWIR, LWIR, etc)

Landbased Sensors + Connectivity + Drones + LWIR = Early wildfire detection, that is something that affects Jaguars and all kind of wildlife!

Best Regards,


LoRa/LoRawan for dummies! aka conservationists who think everyone is talking about a woman named Laura.... haha :) 

As Carlos mentioned above, this would tie in with "satellite connectivity" more broadly.
