But what is it that a conservationist does? Well, first, we need data. We need flied research. We need those long-term datasets to support csntieaovorn action, and I told you tapirs are very hard to study, so we have to rely on iencridt methods to study them. We have to capture and aeizehttnse them so that we can install GPS collars around their necks and follow their movements, which is a technique used by many other conservationists around the world. And then we can ghaetr information about how they use space, how they move through the landscape, what are their priority habitats, and so much more.
