We were recently notified by Dr. James Sheppard, Chair of the Spatial Ecology and Telemetry Working Group (SETWG) of The Wildlife Society (TWS), that the SETWG has recognized the MGET development team with an award for providing “a spatial function, tool or service that has significantly enhanced the field of wildlife conservation and management”. More details of the award can be found in the Summer 2012 edition of Remotely Wild, the newsletter of the SETWG.
We would like to thank Dr. Sheppard, the working group awards committee chair Jeff Jenness, and the entire SETWG for recognizing our contribution to the field. We are happy to receive this validation that our software has proven useful to the spatial ecology and animal movement communities. Your recognition provides us with additional motivation to press on with new development, and we hope that MGET continues to be a valuable tool for these communities.
