BRI in the News

BRI news stories have appeared in many regional, national, and international news outlets. These stories help promote awareness of our work but also promote the general issues of conservation biology and the need to continue research in wildlife health and its implications to human health.

BRI's researchers are available to talk to journalists and provide expert information on both the work we do and the broader topics of their expertise.

New NABCI Article on Bird Conservation and Tech, by BRI Wildlife Biologist


The Ever-increasing Role of Technology in Bird Conservation
By Iain J. Stenhouse, PhD, Biodiversity Research Institute
 
Technology, it seems, infiltrates all of our lives at a rapidly increasing rate. This is also true of bird conservation, as we often look to technology to ease difficulties encountered in field studies or long-term monitoring that we have been unable to overcome in any other way.
 
I am most familiar with the marine environment, so most of the examples I know are from that realm. But, with just a few moments of reflection, I am sure you could develop a similar list of examples of technology in conservation work no matter what ecosystem or avian taxon grabs your fancy.
