Animals: Featured Tools & Techniques

Detailed Description

Across the USGS, our scientists are developing decision-support tools and technologies to monitor and assess risks to animals. We develop advanced technologies such as remote sensing, autonomous vehicles, artificial intelligence, and genetic tools to assess the status, behaviors, and health of wildlife populations. From mapping mule deer migrations in the West to monitoring the distribution of monarchs in North America, explore the latest and greatest tools and techniques we’re using to develop a more accurate and comprehensive understanding of our Nation’s wildlife.
