Project Providence

Tropical forests are rapidly disappearing from our planet because of deforestation from cattle ranching, logging, mining, oil drilling, agricultural expansion, construction of roads and dams, and expansion of urbanized areas. Providence is a high-tech project revolutionizing the way biodiversity is monitored by creating a distributed, wireless sensor network throughout the jungle with autonomous observatories that continuously monitor wildlife under the canopy of the Amazon forest.
