Event description

Description

Rhett Butler, Founder and CEO, Mongabay
Topher White, Founder and CEO, Rainforest Connection
Crystal Davis, Director, Global Forest Watch
Barb Page, Bay Area Conservation and Ocean Conservationist

There is an accelerating effort among scientists, forest and wildlife managers as well as technologists and interest groups from NASA, Google and the Jane Goodall Institute to harness new technologies. These technologies, which range from satellite sensors, drones, camera traps and DNA detectors, can be used to improve and maintain forest and wildlife conservation; fight and expose illegal, unsustainable practices; and prevent the use of dangerous fuels and chemicals. Our panel will discuss what is new and what is working in this area. They will also discuss what 21st century technology might soon be available to protect and create healthy and safe environments in the Bay Area and throughout the world.
