Life on Land

Protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, and halt and reverse land degradation and halt biodiversity loss.

A flourishing life on land is the foundation for our life on this planet. We are all part of the planet’s ecosystem and we have caused severe damage to it through deforestation, loss of natural habitats and land degradation. Promoting a sustainable use of our ecosystems and preserving biodiversity is not a cause. It is the key to our own survival.

NTT Ltd. : Connected Conservation

NTT Ltd. believe animals should roam free. Together NTT Ltd., Cisco and Connected Conservation Foundation use IoT to track illegal human behaviour keeping animals safe and free.

Connected Conservation’s vision is to eliminate all forms of poaching, globally, through continued innovation in intelligent technology. A game reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park, South Africa, harness the power of technology to dramatically reduce rhino poaching. In 2018, Connected Conservation expanded into other parts of Africa, including Mozambique, Zambia, and Kenya.

An end-to-end solution was introduced, proactively stopping people entering the reserve illegally. If an incursion takes place, the solution triggers an alarm in the control center. An alert with exact co-ordinates for the incursion is sent to armed rangers’ mobile devices, who patrol both on the ground and in a helicopter.
