The Challenge

As climate change worsens, the health and safety of forests is becoming increasingly vital. However, current forest protection technology is cumbersome and ineffective. Forest Guard aims to leverage their energy efficient sensor technology to prevent natural disasters and illegal logging- saving the ecosystem.

Solution

Forest Guard's wireless system of smart sensors work by detecting and analyzing sound. If the system detects illegal logging, a forest fire, or illegal vehicle entrance, it will immediately send an emergency signal to the customer. Their solution is unique as the system is incredibly energy efficient- the battery only needs to be changed every 6-7 years.

Impact

Installation of the sensor system is cost effective and will prevent large potential costs in the long-run that can stem from illegal activities. By protecting forests, Forest Guard is ensuring the health of the natural ecosystem and protecting the health of people living nearby.
