The unprecedented challenges to preserving biodiversity demand creative approaches. Advances in technology and large-scale data mobilization now generate huge amounts of biodiversity data, outpacing our ability to rapidly synthesize disparate data types into actionable knowledge. As in many sectors, the COVID-19 exposed the fact that we are not well-positioned to efficiently mobilize to understand evolving phenomena. I will discuss some lessons learned through the COVID-19 BioLogging Initiative in the gaps in our ability to use animal movement data. I will also discuss how the growing constellation of remote observations of wildlife may complement one another to understand biodiversity at scale.
