Our Mission:

We believe that every forest should be protected for the future of our planet, working with local communities, our technology and systems can ensure this happens.

Secure Forests Now

​Our important work continues despite the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic.  

The nature of our modus operandi enables a working approach that allows us to continue to make a positive impact on the ground without the need for international travel.

COVID-19

Why Now?

We lost a football pitch of primary rainforest every six seconds in 2019.

If this trend continues there will likely be no primary rainforest left by 2050. This will be mean our planet will lose a vital source of oxygen negatively affecting all species on earth.

SECURE FORESTS NOW

  • Our projects integrate satellite and terrestrial sensor data with inputs from the forest ranger patrols and ground observations.

  • We support the forest rangers to adjust their strategies, operations and tactics as well as optimizing enhanced domain awareness.

  • We are able to integrate our forest ranger dashboard with a satellite informed GIS and deliver our training in multiple languages to protected area managers and non-governmental and government agencies.

  • We develop local strategic partnerships with organizations,who are innovating and taking action to secure forests.

  • Our important work continues, despite the constraints of the Covid-19 pandemic.  The nature of our "modus operandi", enables a working approach that allows us to continue to make a positive impact on the ground without the need for International travel.

Having worked with Chris Minty MBE and the Secure Forests team whilst on exercise in the jungles of Belize over many years, I know how dedicated they are to the conservation of tropical forests.

 

As a Special Forces soldier I have worked extensively in some of the most extreme environments in the world and I have come to appreciate how important tropical forests are to endangered wildlife.

 

The professionalism, dedication and passion that the Secure Forests team demonstrate is making a real difference to these important habitats and I fully endorse their work.
