NASA satellite data to aid global conservation

The World Conservation Union, the world’s largest environmental knowledge network, signed a joint declaration in Bangkok, Thailand, to use NASA satellite data to help in worldwide conservation efforts.

The purpose of the joint declaration is to improve IUCN access to NASA data, technology, images and remote sensing products. IUCN members and commissions will incorporate the data to help improve the quality and effectiveness of environmental decision-making and to improve conservation outcomes.
