Our Mission

WildTrack is a 501(c)3 based at the JMP Division of SAS Software, USA.  Our mission is to develop and implement non-invasive, community-friendly approaches to provide more effective monitoring of endangered species, to  protect them and to reduce human:wildlife conflict.

WildTrack has developed a footprint identification technique (FIT) that enables wildlife conservationists to identify endangered species from their unique footprints.

This short documentary video by Ray and Susan Ellis of Footpath Pictures (https://footpathpictures.com/filmmakers/) shows WildTrack’s Drs Sky Alibhai and Zoe Jewell  tracking cheetah with the San people on the Central Namibian Plateau.

senseFly with WildTrack and Kuzikus

October 27th, 2019

Can senseFly’s eBee X help us monitor rhino and other wildlife in Africa?  We’re here in Namibia trialing this awesome drone using many different parameters and on-board sensors.  We’re super grateful to Robert Leake of senseFly Europe for his expertise in challenging conditions, and to the Reinhard family at Kuzikus Wildlife Research for their participation and assistance in our ground-truthing.

WildTrack in Numbers 2018

WildTrack works to deliver non-invasive monitoring for endangered species.  Our footprint identification technique (FIT) is customized for each species in our many different species project partners around the world

Field projects send us footprints, and together with our students in universities around the world we develop species algorithms and help field projects apply the technique.  

Thanks to generous support from JMP (in which FIT sits) we are also able to help field scientists use JMP  data visualization software without additional cost.
