Drones for conservation of animals and their habitat

Land-cover change and hunting are leading to major declines in tropical biodiversity. The fast changes occurring in the tropics place an urgent need on rapid and affordable techniques to monitor wildlife and its habitats. Recently the use of drones in conservation has increased markedly. Drones allow for the acquisition of very-high resolution imagery in a flexible low-cost system. A variety of sensors can be used to obtain images that can ...

Bridging the gap between conservation practitioner and remote sensing science

The rapid advancements in remote sensing technology offer a unique opportunity to address the increasing rates of ecosystem degradation and biodiversity loss. Although satellite data have been available for decades, and the use of remote sensing has been increasing, many barriers still exist to leveraging these data for the benefit of conservation planning and management.  To address these barriers, a group of conservationists and remote sensing scientists published the ...

Understanding and Using Climate Adaptation Related Spatial Data in Regional Conservation Planning

Climate-driven shifts in species and ecosystems are complicating efforts to conserve biodiversity at the landscape scale. Recognizing this challenge, agencies and non-governmental organizations are increasingly searching for tools and information that allow identification of areas that are key to enhancing resilience and adaptation potential of natural systems under climate change. AdaptWest is a spatial database for conservation planning that helps fill that information need by providing seamless high-resolution data on ...
