The focus of the Conference is to review existing, planned space based technologies and applications for wildlife management, and protecting biodiversity in support of meeting the relevant targets set out for Sustainable Development Goal 15: “Life on Land – to protect, restore and promote sustainable use of terrestrial ecosystems, sustainably manage forests, combat desertification, halt and reverse land degradation, and halt biodiversity loss”.

The aim of the conference is to bring together stakeholders involved in biodiversity and wildlife management, including representatives of space industry, governmental and non-governmental organizations and expert communities, as well as the relevant space applications and geo-spatial experts and the users of such applications, including park rangers and wildlife managers, to share their user requirements and experience and present existing and planned space technologies and applications.
