TerraLook: Free Satellite Images for Busy People or the Technologically Disinterested

Although satellite images are now widely available they are still underutilized by the conservation community. Yet, such images are tremendously useful for discovering and monitoring change, for understanding what is happening on the ground, and for simple and powerful communication.

A variety of reasons contribute to this under-use, including complicated systems for obtaining and processing images, the need for fast Internet connections, and the belief that images are too difficult to find and use.

Building capacity for conservation of wild felids and their supporting ecosystems in China

We are working to strengthened national and local capacity applied to the monitoring and conservation of wild felid species throughout China. China remains one of the world’s most bio-diverse nations, with a vast array of ecosystems and species, including 13 of the world’s 36 wild felid species. This work is addressing China’s lack of capacity and expertise to monitor and manage felid biodiversity within their expanding number of PAs. Wild felids are both particularly threatened and particularly good umbrella species, providing a charismatic model for conservation.

Ecopsychology Camp: Cultivating Ecological and Psychological Resiliency

Ecopsychology is a transdisciplinary field of inquiry predicated on a belief that humanity is a part of nature. It bridges the sciences and humanities in order to stimulate insight, creativity and imagination; foster a mature, empathic and ethical awareness; utilize ecological, biological and psychological principles essential to sustainability; and recognizes that all of life's systems: personal, social, ecological, economic, and mechanistic are interdependent and linked through multiple synergistic relationships.

Ecopsychology Camp will explore the human ecosystem through five main ecological principles that will provide images, metaphors and ideas for how we can address plaguing issues in culture and conservation with more innovative, creative and ecosystemic solutions.

Corridors, Canyons And Cetaceans: Ocean Management Initiatives For The Deep-Sea Habitats Of The Coral Triangle

Indonesia is positioned at the nexus of two oceans. Its diverse deep-sea habitats include migration corridors, seamounts, canyons, trenches and upwelling zones that are of regional importance within the Indo-Pacific, yet remain poorly known. From 1998-2011 visual and acoustic surveys and research have been conducted on blue whales, sperm whales and other oceanic cetaceans.

Species Cataloguing and Plant Red-listing at National Level

The workshop is for sharing the case studies on Catalogue of Life, Red-listing and Forest biodiversity monitoring in China and beyond, and providing a platform for exploring the possibility to build up regional network for species diversity assessment, monitoring and conservation.

International cooperation for the mitigation of adverse impacts of Asian Dust aerosols

The occurrence frequencies and the intensities of dust and sand storms (DSS) from many arid and semi-arid regions, including Northern China, Central Asia and Mongolia, are in the increasing trend due to the rapid desertification caused by different reasons, climate change and unsustainable land uses such as overgrazing, heavy farming, deforestation for other uses.

Operationalising Ecosystem Based Disaster Risk Reduction at national and sub-national levels

The conservation community makes significant contributions to disaster risk reduction (DRR) and livelihood security efforts, globally. However, such contributions are not widely communicated, recognised and invested in (especially by key humanitarian aid donors). The training course demonstrates the critical links between ecosystem management, DRR and climate change adaptation for policy makers, practitioners, donors and scientists. It also equips participants with concrete ecosystem management tools that can catalyse ecosystem based DRR.

Food and Ecological Security: The Role of Public and Private Sector in Supporting Ecosystem Resilience

Food security is top on the global agenda. World population and food consumption are still on the increase adding more pressure to the food supply system. These trends of demography dynamics and consumption patterns, combined with the threat of climate change and irreversible ecosystem service degradation, would lead to higher uncertainties regarding our current dominating food production models.

Towards a collaborative partnership on sustainable wildlife management

The collaboration is an innovative way of organizing actions of various stakeholders to reach one common goal – achieve sustainability in the utilization of wildlife resources for the benefit of nature and humans. Each partner has its own field of expertise and by sharing this know-how and providing reliable data to the decision makers, the common challenges can be recognized and objectives will be reached more efficiently. There is a connection between ecosystem management and services, food security and greening the world economy, such as in the bushmeat case.
