Case Study Insights
Conserving Tasmania's Disappearing Species
“Globally, there are well over 41,000 species listed as endangered. The Tasmanian devil and the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle -- both of which are not found anywhere else in the world outside of zoos -- share the unfortunate designation of ‘endangered’ as well. Located on the island of Tasmania, which is the southern-most state of Australia, both species share a unique biodiversity that supports a mix of habitats for endangered plants such as the Grassland Paper-daisy, endemic species like the Ptunarra brown butterfly, and other rare and endangered marsupials and birds distinct to Tasmania. With declining numbers of certain flora and fauna, groups such as the Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) are working to ensure a sustainable future for a threatened and unique ecosystem.”Read the case study
Guyra Paraguay Creates ‘Virtual Walks’ with Avenza Maps
Guyra Paraguay’s mission is to promote and coordinate actions for the conservation and sustainable use of biodiversity, with an emphasis on bird conservation. Their biggest challenge was to find an application for both Android and iOS, with a friendly interface, that would not require an internet connection to be used in remote areas like in our conservation unit. On top of this, taking into account the limited resources available to generate interactive maps. We got a chance to interview Tatiana Galluppi Selich, an Environmental Engineer at Guyra Paraguay, to talk about using Avenza Maps in conservation.Read the case study
