A HIGHLY EFFICIENT SYSTEM AND SEAMLESS PLATFORM

We simplify environmental data collection, to quantify and support the impact of turtle conservation initiatives.

Safe

Each component of the platform securely stores information to help users determine where and when hatchlings will emerge next.

Accessible

Monitoring teams on the beach can visualize nest information on demand with or without internet connexion

Precise

All the nest monitoring data is standardized with all events and environmental observations automatically georeferenced

Predictive

Our in-nest or above-ground wireless sensor data can be transmitted on demand anytime for rapid viewing and predictive intervention.

Nesting Safe

DIGITAL NEST
MONITORING SYSTEM

The Nesting Safe system consists of four modular components to deliver a complete digital solution based on your individual requirements for data collection

The mobile application collects and securely stores all the nesting events gathered in the field with a rugged Android tablet
The web dashboard receives and syncs all the nesting data from each beach allowing users to visualize, export, and share the data.
The wireless sensors collect and store the environmental data until called upon to transmit to the bridge.
The communication bridge enhances the mobile app’s GPS precision and transfers data from sensors to the tablet.

Environmental data collection from below and above ground

Install multiple sensors on a beach for precise mapping of microclimatic conditions as they impact where and when nesting occurs

Beyond the limits of data collection and transmission

Communication technology that can transmit all nesting events and environmental data from inside turtle nests, on demand, directly to your historical database

Export to a secure database for more in-depth data analytics

Correlate all your nesting events with field observations and previous datasets within the nesting Data Platform.
Distributed sensor array can provide spatio-temporal time series of changing environmental conditions.

TECHNOLOGICAL ADVANTAGE FOR A DISTRIBUTED OFFLINE COMMUNICATION SYSTEM IN TURTLE NEST MONITORING

Problem: Most beaches are remote and do not have the communication infrastructure that cell phones or WiFi rely on.

Solution: Our distributed communication system and wireless temperature-humidity sensor technology provide offline data collection capability for rapid deployment and transmission of data through and above ground.


An array of data is relayed on-demand to provide reliable time series of microclimatic changes in the sand, the beach vegetation, or in the air that can alert when and where critical thresholds are attained in turtle nests and throughout the nesting season.

The data management platform offers you a full interactive experience using real-time maps to visualize all the nesting events and key habitat parameters as they unfold on every beach.

TESTIMONIALS

Sea turtle conservation is actively managed across all hemispheres. Global warming is impacting the sex ratios and cooking eggs in the nest.

Habitat changes and increased nesting observations to protect turtle nest require more rugged data collection methods that are efficient, secure and reliable at all levels

However, the methods available for collecting data to monitor turtle nesting populations are time-consuming and are not meeting the new requirements for storing, filtering and displaying data on a secure platform.

"Nesting Safe developed new technologies that allow temperature, humidity, and motion detection in situ, as well as provide for coordinated networks of data input among tablets and among sites globally.

For example, the inputs allow you in Location A to list the species of vegetation on your tropical beach. That generates an expanding dropdown list for all users on tropical beaches to select from their list of vegetation.

This could provide the collection of large sets of habitat data that are linked to each nesting event for each individual turtle. Suffice it to say, that this kind of technology will allow us to look at global habitat trends in relation to individual, site-specific, and species-wide nesting activity."
