Recognition of CXL’s Sentinel smart camera system as best new conservation technology product of 2023
CAPE TOWN, South Africa: Conservation X Labs (“CXL”) announced today that it was named a winner of the 2023 Conservation Technology Award by EarthRanger, a leading protected area management software from the Allen Institute for AI (AI2). The award recognizes Sentinel, a smart camera system designed and engineered by CXL for the frontlines of the biodiversity crisis. Sentinel provides near real-time information to rangers, conservationists, and researchers, enabling more dynamic protected area management and faster response to important events in the wild.
“We are immensely proud of this recognition of the Sentinel by EarthRanger,” said Dr. Alex Dehgan, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of Conservation X Labs. “Our goal is to democratize frontier technology for all conservationists globally with the power of artificial intelligence to monitor and understand wildlife and wildlands, and the threats they face, in near real-time. Ultimately, this will help researchers and conservationists better preserve and protect our planet’s biodiversity.”
The CXL team began developing Sentinel in 2019, and have since deployed 115 Sentinel devices across six countries for various use cases including invasive species monitoring, anti-poaching detection, and animal behavior research. Sentinel enables near real-time monitoring on existing wildlife monitoring systems, such as camera traps with customizable AI and satellite communications.
“My hope is that Sentinel is a force multiplier for those on the frontlines of wildlife conservation and that it makes their job more effective by offering real-time visibility into the threats that previously were only visible months later after a hike to retrieve an SD card,” said Sam Kelly, Director of Conservation Technology at Conservation X Labs. “We are ecstatic that AI2, EarthRanger, and the expert judging panel felt that Sentinel is a critical tool for wildlife conservation.”
The CXL team plans to use the $15,000 grant to conduct deployments in under-resourced conservation areas where the Sentinel can make a dramatic difference.
Conservation X Labs creates solutions to prevent the sixth mass extinction by developing transformative technologies, harnessing innovation through competitions, and building a community of innovators across disciplines. With the belief that humans have the power to solve the problems they've created, CXL stands at the forefront of conservation technology. Learn more at www.conservationxlabs.org.Contacts
