Cybertracker evaluations have become the international standard for evaluating and certifying wildlife trackers. The system was created in South Africa in 1994 by Louis Liebenberg who set out to identify those with exceptional skills amidst the steep decline in traditional tracking skills (The name derives from the digital system designed to assist the native people record their findings.)
In 2005 Mark Elbroch (author of Mammal Tracks and Sign) held the first evaluation in the USA. Since then the system has been adopted by numerous schools, state agencies and research teams. The system has travelled across the globe and is now well-established in Northern Europe.
