The Rangers at Loisaba Conservancy in Kenya, which conduct over 2,000 patrols each year, walking an average 1,803km/1,100 miles a month and recording 6,026 different wildlife sightings and collecting data on threats, like poachers' snares. How do we know this? Because of the SMART system that was launched last year with the Zoological Society of London. Analysis of data by Chege Amos, Loisaba's Conservation Officer supported by Space for Giants, has shown some fascinating trends, and allowed ranger patrols to be fine-tuned to be even more effective. SMART allows a continuous flow of information from the rangers on the ground to Loisaba’s management, so that effective conservation decisions based on real science can be made.
