We simplify environmental data collection to quantify and support the impact of turtle conservation initiatives
Nesting Safe hatched in 2014, during a hands-on nest monitoring trip along the coveted Mediterranean nesting beaches. The concept was validated with renowned conservation experts, paving the way for a digital solution that incorporates all the nesting events with automated mapping of nest sites, false crawls and predators.
From Paper to Digital
Nesting Safe created a digital solution that addresses the scientific and organizational needs in turtle conservation, by creating a software platform that can collect, store and map nesting events, as opposed to the traditional pen and paper methods of storing and transferring data manually, or marking nests with sticks that end up as firewood.
A platform based on a client-driven solution
Our strength is the ability to translate your ecological monitoring needs into a management solution that allows all users to enter nesting events and to secure the critical data, from beach to platform.
Existing data sensors have limited range or must be retrieved after the nest is empty. Our engineers created wireless sensors that collect, store and transmit nest temperature from 1m depth, on demand.
Nesting Safe’s patent-pending communication system and environmental sensors for turtle conservation, help monitor the effects of global warming on egg survival during incubation.
At Nesting Safe, we integrate a highly skilled team of engineers and developpers to customise your version of the platform.
We help our clients seamlessly collect, map and visualize their data with a trusted offline solution that functions directly on the beach
Our dedicated engineering team developed an advanced proprietary wireless communication system that can store and transmit environmental data through sand, on the specific request of the scientific requirements for monitoring turtle nest temperatures and humidity.
The CRADAL (Concealed RADio Activated Localisation) sensors have capabilities in transmitting data on demand when the user patrols the beach.

Responding to ecological data management
We recognize the knowledge and expertise of beach permit holders, managers and conservation scientists. The development of our turtle nest monitoring system is based on the input of this field expertise.

"All the data is related to a singular goal, monitoring the nests on a beach”.
Our solution permits multiple teams to collect different data on a specific nest over the lifetime of the incubation. Sporadic collaborative data is collected without needing to rely on outside infrastructure; without needing a constant internet connection. Unlike Google docs, for example, where we are able edit the entirety of the same document at the same time: there must be a constant internet connection. What Nesting Safe does is a similar idea, but without the need for a constant connection, which allows our inputs to be sporadic and reliable.
“The truth is, we do... magic!”.
Each part of the system, taken alone, is not that impressive. It's the cohesive union of every part that enables the tablet to work offline and synchronize the collaborative data back again to all the tablets after that. This is the most impressive aspect.
