Conservation Innovation 2017


Esri (Environmental Systems Research Institute), the global leader in spatial analytics, will receive the Foundation’s first-ever Conservation Innovation Award for their ceaseless work to ensure ocean scientists, resource managers, and conservationists can better respond to changing pressures on the world’s marine and coastal environments. Esri’s platform allows anyone to discover, analyze and share information through its award-winning story maps. More recently, Esri provided access to access data including salinity, temperature, oxygen levels and nutrients through its Ecological Marine Units mobile app.  All this information and technology is open and available for schools to inspire the next generation of ecologically-minded STEM students.
