Researchers at the Centre for Applied Conservation Science at the University of Adelaide are currently undertaking a project to look at the cost effectiveness of technology in conservation. Further information on the project can be found here. The study into cost effectiveness will look at both the actual costs of technology use and the views of conservation researchers and practitioners about using new technologies. The output of this research is a toolkit that would support evidence-based decision making by conservation practitioners in the planning and management of conservation projects using technology.
The researchers are asking staff and volunteers from Australian conservation non-government organisations, state and commonwealth government staff working in the natural resources and conservation sectors and staff and students from Australian universities to participate in the survey.
