Presenter: Marcus Pearson, Adventure Scientists 

Date/time: Thursday, October 24th at 10am PT/ 1pm ET

Description: Adventure Scientists is a nonprofit that equips partners with data collected from the outdoors that are crucial to addressing environmental challenges. By leveraging the skills of the outdoor adventure community we are able to gather difficult-to-obtain data at any scale, in any environment.

Since our founding in 2011, Adventure Scientists has sent thousands of volunteers on missions to collect data from remote, difficult-to-access locations for our conservation partners. These partnerships have led to the discovery of more than three dozen new species, provided key information to guide climate change decision-making, and helped protect threatened wildlife habitat around the world. 

Through our advisors and various partnerships, we are able to integrate cutting-edge field-collection technologies into research. 

CBI presents this webinar in partnership with the Society for Conservation GIS (SCGIS). To learn more about this organization, please visit https://www.scgis.org/.
