Conservation Technology

In 1965, Gordon Moore astutely predicted the remarkable strides in technology, accompanied by a simultaneous reduction in manufacturing costs. Today, we are fortunate to have an abundance of incredible sensor and communications technology at our disposal, which is further enhanced by advances in artificial intelligence techniques – all at affordable prices.

Yet, despite the introduction of numerous impressive tech solutions through innovative research or clever marketing, many of these fail to become everyday tools for conservation managers. The distinction between tech solutions that endure and those that fade away often lies in the successful on-the-ground implementation and integration of these systems, rather than the innovative components they are composed of.

At Contemplate Wild, our mission goes beyond simply embracing innovation. We strive to excel in the real-world integration and implementation of technology in conservation. By bridging the gap between cutting-edge technology, science and practical application, we aim to unlock the true potential of these advancements, enabling conservationists to make informed decisions that have a lasting positive impact on wildlife and their habitats.
