Partners with Nature Positive Economy CRC: Revolutionising Conservation Through Technology

February 22, 2024


We are thrilled to announce that has joined the Nature Positive Economy CRC as a new partner, ushering in a new era of ecosystem conservation and restoration. With a groundbreaking approach that marries bio- and eco-acoustics, remote sensing, and advanced artificial intelligence, is at the forefront of transforming how we monitor, evaluate, and sustain the natural world.


A Game-Changing Approach to Ecosystem Monitoring’s  innovative approach aspires to bring radical transparency to carbon markets and biodiversity conservation efforts. By combining remote sensing technologies with in situ sensors (e.g. acoustic recorders & wildlife cameras), offers a comprehensive view of ecosystems, even beneath dense canopies. This holistic approach enables early detection of environmental changes, paving the way for timely interventions and more effective conservation strategies.


Harnessing Artificial Intelligence for Nature


At the core of’s  approach is the integration of self-learning artificial intelligence with cloud technology. This allows for the processing of vast amounts of data from both remote and in-situ sensors, offering reliable measurements of ecosystem health. The result is a level of transparency and accuracy in impact measurement that sets a new standard for nature-based project evaluations. AI results are always reviewed  by scientists.

Meet the Team: Dr. Michael Schmidt, Leading Innovation


Leading the team of experts at is Dr. Michael Schmidt, CEO and head of science . With a PhD from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) and over three decades of experience in using satellite data for environmental monitoring in Mexico, Dr. Schmidt is a pioneering force in the field of conservation technology. Under his leadership, has tested its technologies on over 3,500 sites, proving the effectiveness and scalability of their approach.

Joining Forces with Nature Positive Economy CRC’s decision to partner with the Nature Positive Economy CRC stems from a shared vision of leveraging Australia’s unique biodiversity, innovative research landscape, and supportive regulatory environment to advance nature-based solutions (NbS). Dr. Schmidt, with his rich background in collaborative research initiatives, sees the CRC as an ideal platform for networking, forming strategic partnerships, and bringing cutting-edge solutions to market.


Looking Ahead: A Future of Impactful Collaboration

As we welcome into the Nature Positive Economy CRC family, we look forward to the profound impact our collaboration will have on conservation and restoration projects across Australia and beyond. By combining’s technological prowess with the CRC’s network of researchers, government institutions, and private enterprises, we are poised to make significant strides towards a sustainable, nature-positive future.

Stay tuned for more updates on this exciting partnership and the innovative projects it will bring to life.
