Carrying out surveys and doing regular monitoring is a really important part of conservation. It enables conservationists to keep a close eye on any changes and define the areas and species that are in most need of help.

Scientific research can help us learn more, resolve unanswered questions about species and help make a big difference in saving them.

Modern technology is enabling us to develop new techniques that improve the accuracy and value of surveys, and our scientists are constantly developing new and better ways of monitoring species in the wild.
