GIS for Environmental and Scientific Research Groups
Founded as the Environmental Systems Research Institute, Esri was established to grow and leverage the science of GIS to create a better world.
Armed with a science founded on the principles of land management, Esri Australia has a rich history in environmental protection. We have helped fortify koala conservation efforts by mapping the endangered species’ populations to identify and protect their habitats nationwide. We have also assisted the Gnaraloo Turtle Conservation Project in Western Australian in their fight to save some of the world's most at-risk sea-turtle species, by dramatically improving their ability to organise, map and analyse vast amounts of data concerning the location of the animal’s primary nesting sites.
Phillip Island Nature Park is using GIS to gain compelling insights into the threats facing Australia’s Little Penguin population.
Using GIS, scientists uncovered Gnaraloo Bay as part of the third largest Loggerhead turtle population in the world.
