Abstract

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.
