Tom August is a Computational Ecologist at the UK's Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. Neil Strong is Biodiversity manager at Network Rail.
Network Rail is one of the biggest landholders in the UK. Amjad hosts a conversation where they discuss how Network Rail is using train mounted cameras, satellite data and monitoring stations to get a baseline on the biodiversity along their tracks and then to protect that biodiversity whilst running a safe and reliable train network.
Tom talks about UKCEH's work developing remote moth stations for detecting species of moths in a habitat and their work bringing AI and technology to the public and citizen scientists.
