University of Redlands students collaborated with the Mamoni Valley Preserve conservation group on a carbon sequestration analysis in Panama. Students were exposed to comparative approaches to conservation, using cutting-edge conservation techniques including data collection with UAVs, mobile mapping devices, and camera traps. Students generated, analyzed, and displayed data crucial for conservation activities, making presentations to key stakeholders on the preserve’s conservation activities.
