Conservation AI provides advanced machine learning techniques to analyse vast quantities of data, offering invaluable insights to conservationists. Conservation AI facilitates the identification and categorisation of animals, humans, and man-made objects, particularly those indicative of poaching activities, such as vehicles. To accomplish this, we rapidly analyse imagery obtained from visual spectrum and thermal infrared cameras, commonly deployed in camera traps or on drones.

Conservation AI provides a seamless and user-friendly workflow, capable of facilitating both near-real-time and non-real-time detection and classification processes. By harnessing the power of AI, we strive to empower conservationists with cutting-edge tools that enable them to make informed decisions and take prompt actions in their critical efforts to safeguard our natural ecosystems.

We have ongoing test projects with Knowsley Safari and the Animal and Plant Health Agency in the UK, the Endangered Wildlife Trust in South Africa, and the Greater Mahale Ecosystem Research and Conservation team. A full list of our partners can be found here.

When images, video or audio files are uploaded to the Conservation AI site they are automatically classified by our trained models to return the species and the associated probability value. Images and audio files can be sent automatically from a variety of different sources including camera traps, drones and existing media. See Getting Started for more details.

How It Works

Conservation AI can automatically identify different species by processing historical data or integrating with variety of different camera deployments for real-time monitoring using 3/4G communications where available.

Powerful Analytics
