We’re turning decades of data and knowledge into game-changing conservation actions.
We are entrusted by our partners–from government agencies to private landowners–to curate and share over one billion ecological observations from science professionals and citizen scientists. We’re building collaborative communities while ensuring the security and integrity of all data we steward.
Real Time Data
We’re developing tools that help industry, agency, and private sector partners make smart decisions from the California Central Valley to the California Current.
Models for the Future
We’re applying our data analysis and tool-building expertise to create ways to see the big picture of climate change. We’re partnering with key stakeholders to elevate big data sets to inform future planning.
Big Picture Questions
We’re bringing communities and data together to ask large scale questions about the future.
Setting the Standard
You can’t ask big questions or plan for the future if you’re comparing apples to oranges. We’ve led the way in data standardization, which has unleashed the power of large-scale data collection and facilitated stronger, more effective conservation partnerships across the country and the world. There’s still more work to be done though. We’re continuing to facilitate data standardization in areas that will have a huge impact for conservation.
