About us

Our Goal

We are a non-profit organization based in Aotearoa/New Zealand that aims to promote the use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for wildlife conservation worldwide. We believe that AI is going to have unprecedented impacts in all aspects of our life and want to ensure this technology is openly applied to protect and save ecosystems and species.

Our Approach

For Wildlife.ai to become a place where people share, learn and discuss about AI and the environment we:

  • Provide an open and inclusive platform for innovators in wildlife conservation to engage and communicate their wins and challenges.
  • Support with funding, labor, and logistics to individuals and organizations using artificial intelligence for wildlife conservation.
  • Educate people about the applications and benefits of using artificial intelligence for the conservation and protection of species worldwide.
