"Threatened by habitat loss, poaching, deforestation and other factors, wildlife in Africa is declining in an alarming rate." Researchers and Conservationist's have been Monitoring Wildlife populations for decades, traditional capture and tag methods have been a primary tool, but they are not the most efficient when dealing with large animals in remote locations.

High resolution satellite imagery, remote sensing and GIS technology will improve the way endangered wildlife in highly inaccessible areas of the world are counted and monitored. To aid in the understanding of why and where species are being lost, Satellite Imagery offers certain advantages such as watching vast areas of the earth all at once on a regular basis and by making temporal comparisons possible to analyze and monitor what is happening on the ground.

Up-to-date high resolution satellites images and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) can directly observe species habitats and their environment over time which allows researchers to predict the best remaining areas to protect and manage.
