Science, technology, and policy for better conservation outcomes
Web based mapping applications for conservation
Change detection, computer vision, machine learning
In the Center for Conservation Innovation at Defenders of Wildlife, we work at the intersection of science, technology, and policy to find creative, practical solutions for better conservation.
We lead and collaborate on original research into the realities of how conservation laws and policies are implemented.
We develop and deploy new technologies to collect and communicate actionable conservation data.
We think creatively about how science, technology, and policy are developed together and advocate for tightly integrated solutions.
