Description: The mission of The Nature Conservancy (TNC) is to conserve the lands and waters on which all life depends. Operating in 72 countries with more than 600 scientists, we are tackling the most pressing threats to nature and people in freshwater, ocean and coast, and terrestrial environments. GIS and remote sensing have informed TNC’s conservation science approaches for decades. At least one in every three Conservancy staff uses maps for conservation planning and action activities, whether to monitor preserves, negotiate land and water transactions, or develop global ecosystem services analyses. Now, with the launch of this first ever Geospatial @ TNC annual report, we are at a pivotal and exciting time. This webinar is designed to (a) provide snapshots of some of the Conservancy’s 2019 geospatial work, (b) present “use cases” that illustrate some of the ways that technology supports conservation, and (c) examine emerging opportunities where TNC can best leverage geospatial technology to protect, conserve and restore ecosystems around the globe.
