CyberTracker Conservation's mission is to improve environmental monitoring for the benefit of biodiversity conservation.

CyberTracker is also being used in education, forestry, organic farming, social surveys, crime prevention and disaster relief.

CyberTracker is the most efficient way to gather large quantities of geo-referenced data for field observations, even by non-literate users, at a speed and level of detail not possible before.

Scientists and conservationists benefit from the icon interface enabling significantly faster data collection than text interfaces or written methods.

Involving scientists and local communities in key areas of biodiversity, CyberTracker combines indigenous knowledge with state-of-the-art computer and satellite technology.
