  7. 8. Data needed to answer key questions for the scientists <ul><li>Jacob Tipton: We knew the success of our project we had done in [location], but also its limitations because it largely funded the contribution and analysis of photographs, but not the dedicated gathering of data. So it very much relied on who was already doing work in certain places. So there were these huge gaps and we knew to really to answer the questions about population size, trends, human impacts, stock structure we had to cover some of these new areas. </li></ul>
