Since 2013, Eurosite has organised a series of workshops to facilitate information exchange on issues related to monitoring Natura 2000 habitats and species. The next Eurosite monitoring workshop will be hosted by Estación Biológica de Doñana on 9-11 April 2019.

The purpose of the workshop is to raise awareness among conservation practitioners of tools, many of which are freely available, that can influence how we plan and deliver conservation monitoring.

The workshop will focus on three main subject areas:

  1. the roles of satellite images in conservation monitoring;
  2. the roles of drone images in conservation monitoring; and
  3. open source software packages that can increase the efficiency, accuracy and precision of our work;
  4. the role of citizen science.
