Bridging the Gap Between Communication and Conservation Efforts with Cutting Edge Technology
In an attempt to improve biodiversity protection in some of Africa’s most remote locations, African Parks has become a committed user of EarthRanger – cutting edge technology which is leading the way in modern conservation efforts. Thanks to this innovative software, methods to safeguard vulnerable wildlife species in protected areas across the continent are being revolutionised.
EarthRanger is a data integration, visualisation and analysis platform which gives the African Parks’ park management teams a real-time tool that helps keep the wildlife and communities living in and around protected areas safe. By combining data from ranger patrols, remote imaging, and various sensors, accurate monitoring information is received from the field and accessible through EarthRanger to assist with anti-poaching efforts and wildlife monitoring.
The platform also gives rangers a data-driven method to help respond to human-wildlife conflict by receiving information that then allows quick response teams to mitigate the conflict.
“African Parks has established a fantastic example of how conservation programmes can get the most out of EarthRanger and related technologies,” says EarthRanger’s director, Jes Lefcourt. “The use of the tool across the organisation demonstrates the power of data-driven decision making in managing protected areas, protecting the wildlife that live there, and supporting the people who live in surrounding areas.”
