Conservation of nature and natural resources has become a significant part of human lives. Currently, so many technologies are evolving daily. Professionals and environmental workers have made so many innovations to join technology and the conservation of nature and natural resources. Let us look ten techs that are related to conservative needs and demands!
1. CAMERA TRAPS
The camera traps have come along a long stride. Presently technology focuses on capturing clear-cut videos and photos of extremely vulnerable animals and mammals. The aim is to increase the popularity of wildlife photography with the use of cameras in trees and canopies.
The crowdsourcing procedures have become as simple as the enticing of few visitors and volunteers for just walking around natural habitats, the collection of environmental data on their mobiles, and even simple cues like detecting and analyzing the soil from the boots of people to study pathogen distributions.
3. ONLINE STUDIES
Few young citizens and environmental enthusiasts are present with the opportunity to join communities for the protection of natural reservations and conservation in groups and plans. Few software and applications allow the person to directly share any information or picture about a new species or any new data about existing ones.
4. AUTOMATED BIOACOUSTIC SENSORS
The sensors for Bio-acquisition allow the user to capture audios of various species. The sensor is very much similar to the camera trap, in a sense, sensors record audios alone and capture sounds of aerial birds and underwater species and fishes.
5. PORTABLE FIELD LAB
The most prominent among the shifting field labs is the GENE which allows the person to directly enter the area of study of the species and take DNA samples readily to study every small part of a plant and animal for further inventions to conservation purposes!
6. DEFORESTATION DETECTION
The technology of artificial intelligence is now useful for detecting deforestation in particular areas of the greenery. This procedure is now useful for Latin America. The process includes a device viewing the green of the forest and signaling if the green is not up to the expected level through the use of pixels and thus denotes human manipulation of resources!
The natural theorists have contributed the use of drones, flying unmanned-camera that captures from a high altitude. The coral reefs, impacts of El Nino, and rare vultures of the areas of East Mongolia have all been possible to detect through drones.
8. DETECTION DOGS
With the power of smell for dogs, people have given training for it, and the dogs help in the detection of DNA materials, dungs, physically tiny objects, and other chemicals that are secreted and released from animal bodies.
9. COMBINATION OF DRONES AND TRAPS
The addition of camera traps along with drones has significantly helped in analyzing and receiving new data regarding animals and other water species. With the help of satellite tracking systems, even current methods have been possible for studying in-depth about a particular animal’s functions.
10. INDIVIDUAL PROTECTION
Few technologies like mobile apps, not only for the professionals but also to the general public have opened the gates for giving the right punishment to the people who are in the screens for harming and exploiting natural resources.
