Technology for Wildlife Foundation’s mission is to amplify conservation impact through the use of appropriate technology. They work via their experience and knowledge, extensive research and inclusive stakeholder consultations.They acquire conservation relevant data from satellite and field work and a fleet of aerial and underwater robots, and then integrate, simplify and visualise data to aid conservation actors in making informed decisions. Using technology, they have worked on explored high altitude lakes in the Indian trans Himalayas, scoured Indian waters for discarded fishing gear, presented on drone ethics, and worked with a citizens project in Mollem National Park, Goa to raise awareness about destructive development projects, and set up a network along the coast of Goa to ensure that stranded animals on the beach might be rescued and aided if alive.
Why are they the right choice for others:
- Using the extensive possibilities of technology to aid conservation movements with large-scale data sets on key climate areas and analyses, using GI mapping, satellite data and aerial and underwater drones and robots.
- Supporting community led and activist and conservation work through collaborations, and co-creation by providing synthesized data to help make informed decisions.
