Digital applications in nature conservation have rapidly gained prominence and now span a range of areas, including:
- Digital public engagement, learning, citizen science, crowd-sourcing
- e-learning and e-gaming
- Novel monitoring tools
- Database connectivity and access
- Online decision-making support systems
Building on the optimistic view that digital technology has a huge potential to aid nature conservation, this conference will also critically address the multidisciplinary dimensions of the impacts of digital applications on this societally important field.
Digital Conservation seeks to establish a new research agenda, by fostering the exchange of ideas, insights and experiences between scientists and practitioners in a field that will increasingly shape human interactions with nature.
