The Wildlife Conservation Network (WCN) draws on human ingenuity and technology to combat threats to endangered species. Partnering with Seagate, WCN and its partners are using leading-edge data storage and cloud technologies to help save endangered animals and their habitats.
The core work of WCN is done by its entrepreneurial partners in the field. The ability to quickly share data, best practices and knowledge among teams is critical to enhancing cross collaboration. WCN partner organizations, like the Snow Leopard Conservancy, often work in remote areas, and the video, photos and other data collected through camera traps is very costly to capture and virtually impossible to replace if lost.
Seagate donates technology solutions to help field teams secure video, photos and other vital data captured in some of the most isolated, inhospitable areas of the world. Teams can then transport and back up the data, have it reliably available for analysis, and then share it with other conservation organizations. This irreplaceable data provides valuable insights about the habits of endangered species and ultimately contributes to their conservation.
WCN enables conservation efforts in Africa, Asia and South America through financial, technical and knowledge-based support of 14 partner organizations. Knowledge sharing among partners is key: sharing creative and proven approaches facilitates collaboration for the benefit of the endangered animals. This knowledge is stored and shared as vital and often irreplaceable digital data.
Field teams needed reliable, portable storage to transport and back up photos, files and data in harsh, rugged environments. Seagate's Backup Plus Slim portable drives were up for the challenge.
To support WCN’s amazing growth and collaborative work model, they needed to back up files efficiently and retire old, outdated equipment. We deployed Seagate 16TB 4-Bay NAS Business Storage (BNAS).
To provide field teams with reliable, consistent access to the data that is crucial to their work and add a layer of protection, we added the Seagate EVault Cloud Service, which seamlessly integrates with the on-site BNAS.
