In this time of human tragedy and hardship, we are hearing stories of animals responding to changes in human activity, as regions around the world take unprecedented actions to control the spread of the caronavirus. But do these stories reflect real changes, and how do they vary by species and region? Animal tracking offers an opportunity to measure how our lockdowns, working from home, or newfound interest in outdoor spaces are affecting wildlife.
If you are interested in joining this global effort, please take the Society's survey by Monday, 1 June.
Taking the survey does not commit you to participation or data sharing for any particular analysis, but would help connect you with relevant projects. Data owners can use their studies' Permissions to share data as they choose.
