About us

We are an independent, global, and non-profit organisation based in Aotearoa/New Zealand

Our Goal

To support and advocate about the research and application of Artificial Intelligence (AI) for wildlife conservation worldwide.

Why wildlife.ai is needed

AI is going to be one of the most important technological advances in human history. However, the application of data-intensive algorithms for wildlife conservation is currently limited due to insufficient guidance, scarce multidisciplinary collaborations, and lack of general support.

Our Approach

To ensure AI is openly applied around the globe to protect ecosystems and species, we:

  • Support with funding, labor, guidance, and logistics to individuals and organizations applying artificial intelligence for wildlife conservation.
  • Advocate the applications and benefits of applying data-intensive algorithms for the conservation and protection of species worldwide.
  • Provide an open and inclusive platform for innovators in wildlife conservation to engage and communicate their wins and challenges.
