Actionable information, also called intelligence, is key for effective nature conservation and wildlife protection.
Without it, rangers are fighting an uphill battle. Indeed, most nature reserves are simply too extensive, and boots on the ground too few, to effectively guard and protect wildlife against poachers.
Hence, a first and necessary step to improve the effectiveness of the rangers, is building a superior intelligence position. The more is known about the poaching threats (targets, locations, timing, modus operandi, local market for hiring trackers and finding buyers, etc.), and the sooner field observations and intelligence can translated into briefings, the better rangers can prepare themselves to take protective action.
With these thoughts in mind, Sensing Clues is making available technologies that help rangers to gain the upper-hand. As no one has the silver bullet, we do so by engaging acknowledged wildlife experts and technology specialists from all over the world. Together, we are building and supporting a Wildlife Intelligence Platform, that contains the necessary intelligence functions for the people working at the frontlines: our rangers.
