Introduction to Conservation

Improving government operations and enhancing services provided to the public

Global biodiversity is facing unprecedented threats from habitat loss, poaching, and climate change. These factors lead to increased fragmentation of critical habitats and loss of key species. As a result, many conservation organizations are starting to use technology to inform decision making and drive conservation intelligence.

Today, conservation technology is disconnected, specialized, and often insecure. Integrated technology systems for managing and protecting natural areas are desperately needed to mitigate unprecedented threats from habitat loss, poaching, and climate change.

ArcGIS Solutions for Conservation reduce the time it takes to deploy location-based solutions in your organization. Leverage your geographic information and the investment your organization has made in ArcGIS to manage wildlife populations, track activities that threaten protected areas, and conduct outreach in and around wildlife areas.
