Animal Telemetry Network Workshop
Animal Telemetry Network WorkshopPosted March 21, 2018
The U.S. Animal Telemetry Network (ATN) is hosting a series of workshops to: 1) identify regional priorities for telemetry observations of aquatic species, including fishes, turtles, pinnipeds, whales and seabirds; 2) determine if priorities could be served by an ATN baseline network; and 3) examine whether the type and extent of existing telemetry assets could adequately satisfy identified requirements. Information generated at the workshop will be used by the ATN to ensure that a concise plan for sufficient funding of the envisioned national ATN program, including infrastructure, operations, integration, and coordination of assets will be achieved.
- Identify and prioritize the telemetry monitoring/observational needs of regional stakeholders.
- Identify existing telemetry observation assets and describe scientific and data management capabilities in the Pacific Islands region.
- Document examples of stakeholder uses and needs of telemetry data from various sectors.
- Identify opportunities and challenges of animal telemetry in the Pacific Islands region, including regional and national collaborations, data assembly and sharing, and a baseline network approach.
