What We Do.
We bring together the latest space technology, terrestrial sensors and ranger training to provide enhanced domain awareness and early warning, in order to protect forests and wildlife.
Now is the time to double down on forest protection.
World Resources Institute
Satellites are able to monitor changes in forest landscapes by combining a large swath, frequent revisit and systematic acquisition of high spatial resolution data.
Prevention and Deterrence of Wildlife Crime
Our local partners and law enforcement agencies are then equipped with the tools and techniques to prevent and deter wildlife crime.
We install a range of terrestrial sensors that compliment our satellite monitoring in order to detect disturbance and maintain rangers' domain awareness; thus allowing safe decision making and appropriate responses.
Forest Protection Services
Our forest protection services help reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation which, when combined with sustainable management of forests, is an essential part of the global effort to mitigate climate change.
Forest Ranger Training
Training and implementation of enhanced situational awareness capabilities using advanced Tactics Techniques and Procedures (TTP's).
Alternative and Sustainable Livelihoods
We work closely with local partners to support communities to develop alternative and sustainable livelihoods, away from illegal forestry trades.
Secure Forests CIC* are a non-profit organisation who work with established partners to help protect and restore forests. We do this by by enhancing and improving monitoring systems that safeguard Forest Rangers and enhance their capabilities to make informed decisions.
