Our biodiversity is at risk. Scientific studies show a 75% decline in insect biomass in the last 3 decades (Source: Hallmann et al., 2017). Biodiversity is included in many of UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and insect biodiversity is important for life on land as well as for food production.
Additionally, on the 22nd of June 2022, the European Commission adopted the proposal for a Nature Restoration Law, which is one of the key elements of the EU Biodiversity Strategy for 2030. Some targets of this strategy are aligned with FaunaPhotonics’ approach to revolutionising biodiversity by digitally measuring the effect of interventions and CSR projects on biodiversity.
FaunaPhotonics’ technology can help achieve some of these targets, which the EU and its member states are committed to implementing by 2030, by measuring biodiversity digitally. These targets including for example: Habitats and species show no deterioration in conservation trends and status. The decline of pollinators is reversed. At least 10% of the agricultural area is under high-diversity landscape features. There is a 50% reduction in the number of Red List species threatened by invasive alien species. Cities with at least 20,000 inhabitants have an ambitious Urban Greening Plan.
