Mongabay public event in Seattle, May 17


Mongabay staffers will visit Seattle soon, and on May 17 Seattle Audubon will host them for a panel discussion about the ever growing use of technology in conservation, from drones to GPS and AI. Speaking will be Founder/CEO Rhett A. Butler, Wildtech editor Suzanne Palminteri, and board member Christopher Herndon. They will be joined on stage by Audubon’s Megan Friesen, who is a bioacoustics researcher (and recent guest on Mongabay’s podcast, listen here).

Learn more here and please join us, or tell a friend if they’re in the area. View full information at the Aububon site.
