Exploring Nature Like Never Before

Our Community

We work with creative scientists, engineers, designers, artists, and conservationists of all ages. Please join our mailing list and attend an event— we’d love to work with you too!


Our Mission

In accordance with our organizational vision to lead the fight against extinction, we design, prototype, and promote technologies to reach conservation goals.

Our Vision

We envision a world where human technologies connect us with wildlife and habitats by helping us understand, empathize with, and protect natural systems.

Selected Prototypes & Projects

We're starting to build tools to explore and discover nature. What if you could experience plant and animal perspectives?

Tech to Reconnect: Forests

August 18th, 2017 (6:30-9pm)


Thank you for your support and interest!

Our Tech to Reconnect event series highlights ways our collaborators and colleagues use technology to gain understanding about (and empathy with) the natural world.
Featured speakers will share how they use technology to help protect, inspect, or connect with forests.
