Protecting ecosystems and encouraging biodiversity help to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. Unfortunately, illegal poaching and trafficking of wildlife, forest desertification and pollution are threatening that sustainable future. The fifteenth UN Sustainable Development Goal ( SDG 15 ) sets targets for restoring ecosystems and protecting the world’s species. Tech for social good Internet of Things (IoT) innovations from the LoRaWAN® ecosystem in support of this goal are shared below.

Protecting Trees from Invasive Species

International agricultural, pest control, biological experts convened at the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) in Rome come up with a comprehensive plan to stop spread of the Red Palm Weevil. “The Red Palm Weevil represents the most dangerous threat to date palm,”Agrint has developed a low-cost and low-energy IoT (internet of things) system which can transmit early detection notifications about infestation of a tree. The “IOtree” solution can be used to protect date palms, ornamental palms, oil palms, and coconut palms. This allows farmers to increase the efficiency of pesticide management and save trees from damage, which eliminates costly replacement expenses.
