What We Offer.
Our Skills.

AniMove is a ground-breaking capacity-building contribution [… ] great opportunities for students to learn about the cutting edge of movement ecology and the important insights which it opens for conservation

Tom Brooks

Director, IUCN Science and Knowledge

We offer two weeks of intensive course and project work to learn how to analyze animal movement data and combine it with remote sensing environmental data.

AniMove is a collective of international researchers with extensive experience in the topics of animal movement analysis, remote sensing and/or conservation. It is a two-week intensive training course for studying animal movement in conjunction with environmental parameters derived from remote sensing for conservation application. AniMove is a non-profit training initiative run by volunteers of various organisations such as MPI, JMU, SCBI or BIK-F.

Recurse package now supports calculating revisits in polygons

The recurse package has a new feature: the ability to examine revisits or residence time in convex polygons, rather than simply specifying a radius. This function came about due to conversations with Lacey Hughey, who I met at an AniMove course. She needed to...

recurse package published in Ecography

The recurse R package by Chloe Bracis, one of our core members, got published in Ecography. From the abstract: "Animals regularly return to locations such as foraging patches, nests, dens, watering holes, or movement corridors, and these revisited locations are often...
