Improving the conservation of Cross River gorillas with mobile based law enforcement monitoring
African Wildlife Foundation, Washington DC
Friday, 1:30 PM to 2:30 PM
November 21, 2014
Dr. Richard Bergl, North Carolina Zoological Society, made a presentation focusing on NCZP’s 5 years of work with Cybertracker. As one of the founding members of the SMART Partnership, he has lead the development of the mobile device component of SMART.
Cybertracker, a mobile computer-based monitoring system, was implemented for Cross River gorilla conservation as appropriate technology. It measures threat, protection and biological data using information collected during field patrols and surveys. Cybertracker lessons are now being used to inform the SMART law enforcement monitoring tool.
