Cybertracker conservation track and sign certification: origins and applications

George Leoniak, Cybertracker Conservation
 
Cybertracker track and sign certifications have occurred in North America since 2005, but the origins of the certifications can be traced back to a scientist and a group of bushman trackers in South Africa. This presentation will discuss these origins, as well as, overview the track and sign field evaluation process. Applications of the field evaluation and certification will be discussed in relationship to wildlife research, education, and personal growth.

George Leoniak (george@leoniak-tracking.com) is a track and sign evaluator for Cybertracker Conservation. He also conducts field research on wildlife corridors throughout New England. He has a M.S. in Conservation Biology through Antioch University.
