Rugged terrain and thick forest cover impose great challenges in assessing and monitoring wildlife, forest fires, poaching, illegal logging, and other activities necessary to inform critical conservation efforts in Bhutan. Across the globe, satellite images are increasingly used for collecting such landscape-level data. However, satellite images are limited in frequency of observations. In addition, high-resolution images-the kind needed for meaningful local conservation action—are limited and often cost prohibitive.
