New: Satellites for Biodiversity Award

Conservation partnership launches new award to advance biodiversity conservation from space


We're delighted to announce that Connected Conservation Foundation and Airbus Foundation have today launched a new grant: ‘Satellites for Biodiversity Award’, to accelerate the use of high-resolution satellite imagery for biodiversity conservation.  

Winners will receive access to the most advanced optical satellite imagery at 30cm spatial resolution from Airbus Pléiades Neo and 50cm from Pléiades, alongside $5,000 USD of financial funding. Along with Esri software, including a pipeline of AI models, to extend the creation, analysis, and sharing of spatial data. 

The grant will support projects that develop or implement solutions or research to advance biodiversity monitoring and habitat conservation. 

Proposed solutions may include wildlife monitoring of colonies and groups of species in hard-to-reach areas, mapping wildlife habitats, supporting protected areas for sustainable management of resources, understanding migration routes and changing human settlements to help improve human and wildlife coexistence.  

Applications for the Satellites for Biodiversity Conservation award are now open and close on February 3rd, 2023.
