WILDLABS introduces itself as being the

the first global, open online community dedicated to conservation technology.

They have a large discussion website which could be quite complementary to this Bioacoustics SE site as suggested several times on meta or the main SE site (e.g., as a forum, as a directory or teaching/job resource).

I'm wondering about the "openness" of their discussion platform. Does anyone know whether the content of the forum is under an open-sharing license? I have not found this information on their website.

PS: see this SE question for the status of the WILDLABS community

This is outlined in the Terms of Use and Community Guidelines documents.

Of note,

"Any content you upload to our site will be considered non-confidential and non-proprietary. You retain all of your ownership rights in your content, but you are required to grant us and FFI and other users of the website an unlimited worldwide non-exclusive licence to use, store and copy that content and to distribute and make it available to third parties."


"As explained in our Website Terms of Use, content that you upload must not infringe the rights of any other person or organisation."

I talk more about WILDLABS' features in my answer to your other question here. I agree there is a lot of complementarity between the 2 sites!
