Conservation International and HP are using science, technology and innovation to address the world’s most complex environmental challenges.


In 2013, CI and HP launched HP Earth Insights, an innovative partnership to leverage HP technology and expertise to dramatically improve the accuracy and speed of analysis of data collected through the Tropical Ecology Assessment and Monitoring (TEAM) Network — a coalition of CI, the Smithsonian Institution and the Wildlife Conservation Society.


Our plan

The partnership reflects CI’s belief that ‘big data’ is an investment in nature — and human well-being. Just as regular doctor visits can help keep people healthy, the early detection of planetary problems is crucial to our survival. HP Earth Insights delivers near-real-time analytics about the species trends in tropical forests at 17 sites across 16 countries, which serves as an early-warning system for conservation efforts. And the project is already showing results: Initial findings show that of the 275 species being monitored, 14% are either significantly decreasing in population or likely decreasing compared with baseline levels.

      EditText: HP’s big data solutions can analyze the data nine times faster than before, generating species trends and indications of the related impacts of climate, people and land use across the 17 research sites and more than 275 species within 30 hours. The Wildlife Picture Index (WPI) Analytics System — a dashboard and analytics tool built by HP Enterprise Services — allows for the visualization of user-friendly, data-driven insights to be accessed anytime, anywhere. The resulting data analysis allows scientists, government officials and the wider public to see changes in ecology and biodiversity unfold in near real time. This enables proactive response to environmental threats as they emerge. HP Earth Insights is an example of HP Living Progress, creating a better future for everyone through actions and innovations.

        Edit Image Description: Nature Is Speaking
        EditText: Nature Is Speaking, and HP is listening. Building on the effort to better understand what is happening inside tropical forests, HP is also supporting the Nature Is Speaking campaign. By giving voice to nature and exploring how humans need nature to survive, the campaign encourages a new conversation about the value of nature to our well-being and future. HP is the exclusive partner of the #NatureIsSpeaking hashtag. HP will give $1 to Conservation International, up to $1 million, for every use of #NatureIsSpeaking on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, G+, Vine, LinkedIn, YouTube and Tumblr. HP has also provided CI with HP Explore technology to monitor the conversation about nature happening online.
