Remote Sensing for Conservation & Biodiversity

22 - 24 January 2019

Organization: National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)

Course Overview: The United Nations Millennium Ecosystem Assessment states: "ecosystems are critical to human well-being - to our health, our prosperity, our security, and to our social and cultural identity." Conservation and biodiversity management play important roles in maintaining healthy ecosystems. Earth observations can help with these efforts. This online webinar series introduces participants to the use of satellite data for conservation and biodiversity applications. The series will highlight specific projects that have successfully used satellite data. Examples include monitoring chimpanzee habitat loss, decreasing whale mortality, detecting penguins, monitoring wildfires, and biodiversity observation networks.
