“The European turtle dove is threatened with extinction. I analyse the information from satellite tracking and remote sensing to help identify the drivers of population decline throughout the doves’ migratory cycle. Wintering in the Sahel and breeding in Europe, the doves can travel more than 15,000 km each year, facing numerous challenges and dangers.
Applying spatial analysis and mapping techniques within a network of scientists, practitioners and policymakers, I provide scientific evidence to develop effective conservation measures where and when they are required.”
An equal world is an enabled world.
