This paper proposes the use of NLG to enhance public engagement during the course of species reintroductions. We examine whether ecological insights can be effectively communicated through blogs about satellite-tagged individuals, and whether such blogs can help create a positive perception of the species in readers' minds, a requirement for successful reintroduction. We then discuss the implications for NLG systems that generate blogs from satellite-tag data.
