Habitat destruction and climate change are increasingly pressuring biodiversity and ecosystems in general. To respond effectively, up-to-date knowledge of changes in biodiversity and a solid engagement of society with nature are both necessary. Citizen Science is one way of contributing to research and ecological knowledge while engaging society with nature.

The TechnEcology project aims to test a new video-camera trapping technology and machine learning to improve the efficiency of surveying of herpetofauna (reptiles and amphibians), in collaboration with members of the community, also called Citizen Scientists.
