Species richness is critical to promote and maintain the protection of any given habitat. The Endangered Wildlife Tracking Team (EWTT) aims to find lost species and to identify ways to better protect them with anti-poaching strategies
Our mission is to REdiscover animals regarded as extinct in sensitive ecosystems by using the latest technology and knowledge, and to implement strategies to safeguard their future.
Modern knowledge and technology combined with ancestral techniques
The EWTT combines different tracking techniques to detect the presence of difficult-to-find species, including animals regarded as extinct.
Tracking is a versatile, efficient and inexpensive tool that allows surveillance and research work to obtain information about the environment, wildlife and its interactions with humans in both rural fields and remote areas.
We offer 4 high-level training programs adapted, in content and application, to the real needs in the field. Our instructors are prepared to train field staff with comprehensive courses that range from track identification of wildlife, to the techniques of recognition, patrol and human tracking, through scientific tracing techniques for the monitoring of threatened animals.
These programs provide the necessary skills to improve the training of already active rangers, as well as to create new patrols, including by reconversion of former poachers.
The programs are facilitated by the Endangered Wildlife Tracking Team and other external entities.
Our multidisciplinary team of experts is dedicated to all the aspects of tracking including technical, tactical and scientific approaches
This team is composed of professional trackers experts in wildlife, with extensive experience in tracing and locating fauna in ecosystems of all kinds.
From the Sahara desert to the tropical rainforest of Sumatra, the team has vast field experience in all terrains and ecosystems.
Some of the members have been trained as Wildlife Rangers and therefore dominate advanced survival skills for rugged environments, as well as environmental safety, human tactical tracking or emergencies in the wild.
