My name is Theo and I am looking into the application of this technology for Jamma International. Specifically we are looking at the state of CBNRM in southern Africa and what technology to use for baseline data collection. I am currently trying to work through the manual so I can report back but am having trouble as the support materials to the manual appear to be unavailable? Thanks.

Hi Tommy happy to chat with any questions you may have

Hi Theo
Which materials are you struggling to access? Here is a link to the technical manual so long

Thanks for you response. I’ll definitely get in touch.

Hello Folks… This is Wasim from Pakistan. For the past two years, I have been leading a SMART project with WWF-Pakistan in two national parks in Pakistan, demonstrating my commitment to ongoing learning and the implementation of cutting-edge technology in conservation efforts. Eager to expand my technical knowledge in SMART applications, I am enthusiastic about participating in SMART councils through online meetings.

In terms of contributions, I am eager to share valuable insights from impact studies conducted on SMART initiatives in Pakistan. Notably, we have recently piloted an AI-based predator early warning system aimed at minimizing human-wildlife conflicts. I am keen to discuss the outcomes and lessons learned from this innovative approach.

Furthermore, I can contribute by shedding light on the on-site challenges that park rangers face in the unique context of Pakistan. By participating in the SMART community globally, I hope to exchange ideas and experiences, learning how others have adopted best practices to achieve the goals and objectives of SMART initiatives.

In summary, my participation in a SMART council would involve sharing impactful studies, insights from AI applications in wildlife conservation, and on-the-ground challenges faced by rangers in Pakistan, while also gaining valuable knowledge from the global SMART community’s best practices.

Hi everyone, my name is Gunter.

I am currently working in the Greater Kruger System in South Africa. I have recently decided to switch over to SMART to monitor key species and their movements within the system.

I am very new to SMART but look forward to getting to know the system.

Hi everyone!
My name is André Desrochers, professor of Ecology and Conservation at Université Laval. I joined this Community because I lead a snow tracking program in a boreal forest of Quebec, Canada. Since 2000 we have recorded over 70,ooo tracks and published several papers based on these data.
I have been using CyberTracker since 2016, and I hope this community will help me know more about CT and now, SMART.
