Wildlife.ai’s mix of ecology and technology

How artificial intelligence can fight species extinction.

Produced by Better Ancestors

Artificial intelligence will be an important technological tool for wildlife conservation. And Wildlife.ai, which is based in Taranaki and led by Dr. Victor Anton, is leading the collaborative learning in this space.

Aotearoa / New Zealand’s unique history means our native flora and fauna are under critical threat from invasive predator species. The good news is we have embarked upon the journey to be Predator Free by 2050.

Wildlife. ai is bringing ecologists and technologists together and into the community. Using a charitable trust structure, a huge emphasis on community involvement, teaching youngsters and courageous ambition, it aims to build new capability. Then, with educated, skilled and experienced young outdoors people equipped with powerful new tools we will have a better chance of saving our taonga species from extinction.
