Develop and use technological tools to quickly increase conservation capabilities around the world, focusing on real-time monitoring, wildlife surveillance and public engagement.
With global biodiversity in rapid decline and a growing number of species on the brink of extinction, advances in technology are becoming ever more important in helping us to solve these conservation challenges. ZSL is working with a range of expert partners to develop innovative and integrated technological tools that will revolutionise wildlife surveillance and biodiversity monitoring. Through using technology we can more efficiently and effectively collect, process and analyse data at different spatial and temporal scales. This in turn can better enable us to identify threats, develop mitigation strategies and test their effectiveness.
