WildTrack has developed a footprint identification technique (FIT) that enables wildlife conservationists to identify endangered species from their unique footprints. This allows them to monitor the animals closely without disturbing them.

This short documentary video shows WildTrack’s Drs Sky Alibhai and Zoe Jewell tracking cheetah with the San people on the Central Namibian Plateau.

UC Berkeley and WildTrack, helping saving Hermes the rhino!

September 16th, 2021

Conservationists now have a new prototype AI tool to help prevent rhinoceros poaching. This Summer, over a time span of just 6 weeks and 3 different time zones, a diverse team of graduate students from UC Berkeley School of Information in collaboration with WildTrack created an end-to-end application that uses…

WildTrack in Numbers 2021

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, citizen scientists and outdoor enthusiasts 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.
