We describe preliminary work on generat- ing contextualized text for nature conservation volunteers. This Natural Language Genera- tion (NLG) differs from other ways of describ- ing spatio-temporal data, in that it deals with abstractions on data across large geographi- cal spaces (total projected area 20,600 km2), as well as temporal trends across longer time frames (ranging from one week up to a year). We identify challenges at all stages of the clas- sical NLG pipeline.
