Welcome to the 2023 Workshop on Advancing Automated Techniques for Wildlife Surveys Across the Greater Mara Ecosystem. During the meeting, we will present findings from an ecosystem-wide aerial survey that was flown in March 2022 and receive feedback on the analytical framework being developed to automatically locate and count large wildlife in remotely sensed images. Ultimately, we aim to create an open-source workflow for archiving survey data, applying and evaluating machine learning models, and sharing results in a cloud-based platform that is accessible to wildlife managers. Additional details can be found at the links below and all materials will be made available on this website after the workshop.
Date and Time:
September 2nd-3rd, 2023
9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m. EAT
Zebu Lodge - Narok, Kenya
