The poster contains content developed with funds from an ESIP FUNding Friday collaboration. Included are an artists rendering of elements of an animal tracking network, and three lessons focused on: 1) an introduction to animal tracking and its applications; 2) an overview of tracking technology and the benefits and challenges of various methods; and 3) a real-world example of a research project that used passive acoustics to understand the movement ecology of bull sharks. This lesson includes content on data analysis and good data stewardship and is targeted at Grades 8-12. This poster was presented at the 2023 January Earth Science Information Partners (ESIP) Meeting held virtually Jan 23-27, 2023.
