Using, sharing, new technologies is key for conservation

5 octubre 2015

Scientists estimate that we are losing species at 1,000 times the natural background rate. New technologies are improving conservation efforts by making it easier, faster, and cheaper to monitor threatened species. But technologies alone cannot conserve biodiversity, a new multi-institutional study finds. The challenge is to use technology more wisely, connect different technologies, and get appropriate technologies into the hands of those than can use them more effectively.
