What is Wildsense ?

About

The Wildsense project aims to engage anyone with an interest in games or wildlife so they contribute to the identification of wildlife and improve world knowledge of animal behaviour. The project was set up by Aaron Mason and Paul Krause from University of Surrey.

Wildsense uses state of the art technology to download and analyze images and metadata of the world’s most endangered wildlife. This innovative software can assist in combating wildlife crime through building valuable profiles of animals at risk, facilitating a greater understanding of important contextual information, such as location and behavior.

Our first project focuses on the wild tiger where we are counting, tracking and studying the behaviour of tigers around the world. Tigers are an endangered species and there are a limited number in the wild today. Together we can protect them, learn and even have fun at the same time. The app is in development and will be released in Spring 2015.

If you have any questions about the project or would like to get involved please contact us.
