At ZSL we are working at the cutting-edge of conservation to develop and apply innovative technology to protect species around the world.
From Machine Learning to Instant Wild, emerging technologies are transforming every aspect of our daily lives. ZSL is at the forefront of applying technology to enhance the work of our conservationists and scientists.
Our technical solutions are developed by working closely with our teams in the field to understand their needs. We then work with partners to fulfil these from the ground up, experimenting with breakthrough technology, building pilot products and scaling successful solutions. We take a collaborative approach, bringing together business leaders, academics, investors and technology companies; bridging the gap to co-create game-changing solutions for global challenges.
In the field and behind the scenes, ZSL is working at the cutting-edge to protect critical species and revive ecosystems. And we really need your help.
Instant Detect 2.0
Instant Detect 2.0 is a wildlife, environment and threat monitoring system designed by conservationists for conservationists.
