Audiences for Open Data advocacy range from students through lay naturalists to professionals. Those of us who edit or write for wildlife newsletters have the opportunities to keep the message alive. If it’s to appeal then it must be kept fresh with new stories: quotes from published papers and books, outcomes and plans for projects, ongoing initatives and examples and advocacy tales from one another.
To that end a small library proves invaluable. Mine is as follows, if you have others then additions to this list would be appreciated:
