SDAV offers workshops and demonstrations to engage the next generation of scientists and advance the public understanding and appreciation of science. Geospatial technology is quickly advancing and is advantageous for the future of conservation biology. By engaging the youth, students, professionals in the conservation field, and community, we can use these tools to effectively and efficiently make better management decisions.
