ICTs for Wildlife Conservation (WSIS TalkX, Part 2)

On 3 March 2021, the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in collaboration with the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) celebrate the UN World Wildlife Day on the 48th anniversary of the signing of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, commonly known as CITES. The event explored the positive impact of digital technologies for wildlife protection, from the role of satellite images and computer algorithms for monitoring endangered wildlife, the Internet of Things and the Cloud to make poaching predictable and using Apps to combat IWT. Within the context of biodiversity conservation and the use of technology, online platforms such as WILDLEX and TECH4Nature can certainly contribute in bridging the gap to ensure the survival of species.
