What is Tech4Nature México?

Reinforcing effective monitoring practices for the conservation of the jaguar and its prey, as well as strengthening the understanding of the effects of climate change in priority ecosystems on the north coast of the Yucatan Peninsula through the installation of an integral and continuous monitoring system consisting of a network of camera traps and the development of open algorithms to detect and identify jaguars.

With 20 cameras and 60 acoustic monitoring devices (audiomoths), we monitor the biodiversity in the Dzilam de Bravo reserve to identify species in the region. With Huawei Cloud Artificial Intelligence platforms, the collected data is analyzed to classify and identify jaguars and other umbrella species.

Impact

PROTECTING BIODIVERSITY AND PEOPLE

  • Accelerate the responsible use of technologies to strengthen fair and effective natural protected areas.

  • Update the reserve's management program with information based on data and technology.

  • Generate information for the development of biological corridors to connect the jaguars' distribution areas.

  • Create and implement effective public policies for biodiversity protection.

  • Community land integration as voluntary conservation donation zones. 

  • Project ownership by local communities.

  • The success of solutions is evaluated against the IUCN Green List standard.
