Making Messy Data Work for Conservation

We present an overview of the opportunities and limitations associated with "messy" data: unstructured observational data, such as citizen science records or ranger patrol observations. We explain how the preferences, skills, and incentives of data collectors affect the quality of the information they contain and the investment required to unlock their potential.
