Cleanweb Wild: Conservation and the Web

This month we are looking at how the web and information technology is being used to tackle issues relating to conservation globally. Whilst technology has been used to help support research and address some of these challenges, it is still reasonably unchartered territory. 

We have a lineup of speakers who have a range of projects; from utilising existing social media solutions, as well as larger scale initiatives, that are starting to help document, chart and empower people to address these big and hard to solve problems that face conservation at a global level.
