WORKING WITH PARTNERS TO ENSURE BETTER PROTECTION
We've partnered with EarthRanger and SMART conservation tools to better protect animals from wildlife crime. As a deployment partner, we use these tools to help reserve managers oversee their patrols and visualize data in real-time and informative ways.
EarthRanger is an easy-to-use online software tool built by Vulcan Inc. to meet the unique needs of protected area managers.
It collects, integrates, and displays all historical and real-time data available from a protected area—wildlife, the rangers protecting them, spatial information, and other threats. EarthRanger empowers protected area managers and rangers to take immediate, proactive actions to prevent and mitigate threat incidents.
The Spatial Monitoring and Reporting Tool (SMART) is designed to improve anti-poaching efforts and overall law enforcement effectiveness in established conservation areas and management zones.
SMART enables the collection, storage, communication, and evaluation of data on: patrol efforts (e.g., time spent on patrols, areas visited, distances covered), patrol results (e.g., snares removed, arrests made), threat levels, and other enforcement activities.
