A Toolkit for Recovery

A Toolkit for Recovery

Species recovery can take many forms and requires expertise from a variety of disciplines. But currently, there is no consistent way to coordinate these efforts. For example, we might find a red wolf’s range map (a map of where the species lives), basic information about the red wolf, and scientific papers about the red wolf, all published in different places. Then we have to compile it, which often means working with different data conventions, terminologies, and other complexities. At the Center for Conservation Innovation at Defenders, we are developing a platform to help address this issue. The platform is called Conservationist.io and will be a set of tools gathered in one place, where people interested in conservation with different backgrounds and expertise can come to collaborate and research species.
