Rainforest Connection (RFCx) is a nonprofit Conservation Technology organization that has developed acoustic technology to protect rainforests from illegal logging and monitor biodiversity to better inform conservation efforts around the world. With the help of AI and ML, their Guardian system is able to detect illegal logging threats, alert on-the-ground partners to take action, and ultimately protect these carbon sinks from being destroyed. They are also monitoring thousands of species with their acoustic analysis platform Arbimon, including endemic and threatened species, quantifying their species richness, behavior, and distribution within vulnerable areas. Their data allows them to better understand the effects of human and environmental impacts on wildlife and guide more effective preservation efforts.
