Wild Sun Rescue Center – Electrocution Survey
Animal electrocution is a major issue in Costa Rica, where the majority of the lines are uninsulated and heavily used by the many arboreal species that travel through the canopy. We helped build a bilingual survey with Survey123 that allows the public to gather data and this feeds a Dashboard to give managers and the public a better understanding of hotspots and solve the underlying issues.
We are thrilled with the work of Mark and Katie in creating a tool for us to identify hot spots of wildlife electrocution so that we can hold the electric company in Costa Rica accountable. Lives will literally be saved!
