We live in a time of accelerating technological development, which offers considerable new potential for monitoring and research. To make the most of these opportunities, through collaboration, BTO is involved in:
- The development and testing of new animal tracking technology
- The development of new approaches to use passive sound recording for biodiversity monitoring of a range of taxa from bats to bush crickets
- The development of new mobile and web-based applications to support citizen science, as well as integrating potential changes with the heritage of our long-term archives
