Assessing and predicting how biodiversity responds to climate change is a particularly difficult task. Technologies such as satellite remote sensing offers repeatable, standardised and verifiable information that can help tackle this challenge. We show how satellite information can be used to inform wildlife management in the face of rapid changes in climatic conditions, helping identify effective solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation. Barriers to a broader endorsement of such approaches will also be discussed.

Dr Nathalie Pettorelli is a senior research fellow at the Institute of Zoology (IOZ). Her research interests include global change ecology and conservation technology. Her expertise focuses on methods to assess, predict and mitigate the impacts of changes in climatic conditions on species and ecosystems.
