From the rainforest floor, out into space and back again, this is forest monitoring.
Our work aims to decolonise data that has previously been inaccessible to those who really need it: rainforest communities.
Forest Monitoring reveals trends and threats in real-time driving real-time climate action. This gives more control to Indigenous peoples and local communities over their land.
If you rely on the rainforest to live and have thousands of years of inherited knowledge, monitoring the forest is part of your everyday. However, the climate is changing rapidly and so is the rainforest.
Combining traditional knowledge with technology and big data and making that data accessible to rainforest communities is key to halting deforestation and fighting the climate crisis.
Data not just for scientists, businesses, or conservation organisations, but for people on the frontline of environmental exploitation.
