Knowing how to analyse and interpret your data in a standardized manner and getting your results and conservation messages out loud and clear are key to conservation success. To support common conservation goals and empower our partners to analyse data they collect we created and hosted a two week international data analysis/modeling/ interpretation workshop for regional marine megafauna monitoring partners in partnership with the University of Santa Cruz and the Wildlife Conservation Society. Based on the success of the data workshop and to help our partners better articulate their conservation messages we created the first video conservation messaging course with the Houston Zoo and brought together regional partners to learn how to shoot and edit video and craft compelling and impactful conservation messages.
