Data Driven Approaches to Protect our Most Precious Resources

Our Mission 

Environmental destruction is all around us. From illicit wildlife trafficking and rare earth mineral smuggling to illegal logging and unreported, unregulated fishing, the global effects of these activities are far reaching and have profound consequences both regionally and globally. Irreversible environmental damage, political instability, conflict, corruption and humanitarian crises are some of the effects of environmental crime. These illicit activities and their destructive effects fuel a hidden global economy that reaches into the billions of dollars range annually and destroys communities, families and countries alike. We bring together a unique team of professionals and leverage our expertise to combat the negative external factors that shape ecosystems. By focusing on the man-made external factors, the natural internal factors are allowed to flourish, creating sustainable, positive environmental effects for all.
