Restoring the health of our land: 农业, the expansion of cities, 森林砍伐和气候变化使bb电子官方网站的土地退化,影响到10亿多人,给世界造成高达10美元的损失.6 trillion per year by making agriculture less productive, increasing risk of floods and severe impacts from drought, and diminishing the benefits that nature provides. BB电子的研究人员正在开发所需的交互式绘图平台和分析工具,以实现将保护人类的变动性投资 and restore critical ecosystems for the benefit of nature and people.

High seas corals: Beneath the waves, vast expanses of the seafloor have yet to be explored. 通过梳理历史数据和全球50万份珊瑚分布记录, bb电子官方网站的科学家在公海上发现了超过116个以前不为人知的珊瑚礁. Largely isolated from human impacts, 这些遥远的深海珊瑚为世界上的珊瑚礁带来了一线希望:它们可以为依赖这些生态系统的海洋生物提供重要的避难所, while helping to “reseed” degraded near-shore coral populations.

Technology to protect wildlife: Camera-trap images are the backbone of much wildlife research. 的 data they provide is critical for crafting smart conservation policies. Wildlife Insights, our breakthrough AI-driven platform, is the world’s largest camera-trap database, currently hosting more than 16 million images. Led by Conservation International — in partnership with Google, the Wildlife Conservation Society, World Wildlife Fund, Smithsonian and others — Wildlife Insights provides reliable, 关于无数物种的最新信息,对科学和保护实践者来说,在很大程度上是不可见的.
