What is ‘conservation technology’?
New technological developments are empowering conservationists all over the world to better address the biggest environmental challenges we face. From camera traps to drones, acoustic sensors to eDNA, technology is increasingly helping us to protect species and ecosystems across the planet.
WILDLABS – a partnership including Fauna & Flora, Conservation International (CI), WCS, WWF and the Zoological Society of London (ZSL) – is the central hub for conservation technology online, connecting more than 5,000 conservationists, researchers, field biologists, engineers, developers, makers and conservation technology experts from around the world. Everyday, our community uses technology in the field to further their wildlife conservation goals.
