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.
