Increasingly large amounts of ecological and environmental data are available for analysis. Using existing data can save time and money, allow us to address otherwise intractable problems, and provide general answers to ecological questions. I will discuss why we should be actively using this data in ecology, how to get started, and give examples of what can be accomplished if we embrace an era of big data in ecology.
