“We face huge challenges to our climate, oceans, wildlife, and natural habitat. Point Blue has shown how to bring together multiple stakeholders—scientists, citizens, foresters, ranchers, city/county/state planners—to take action that is making a difference. At the intersection of computer and conservation sciences there is more data, from better aerial and satellite imagery, and from more devices in the hands of scientists and crowdsourced citizen scientists. We have open source software projects that are collaborating to make the software tools we need. We have more compute power available, and some new machine learning and statistical algorithms to take advantage of them. Point Blue’s scientists are in prime position to leverage this watershed moment and I am honored to have the opportunity to support them.”
