NATURE LOSS IS A PLANATERY EMERGENCY.



Humanity has already wiped out 83% of wild mammals and half of all plants and severely altered 3/4th of ice-free land and two-thirds of marine environments. 1 mn species are at risk of extinction in the coming decades, a rate tens to hundreds of times higher than the average over the past 10 million years.

$44 trillion of economic value generation, over half the world’s total GDP is moderately or highly dependent on nature and its services. Nature loss matters for most businesses through impacts on operations, supply chains, and markets.

“Seedcopter is a pioneer in the field of UAV aerial seeding for reforestation. We use data science, drones, seedball technology combined with ecological science to find optimal land restoration options. We want to conserve the present day forests through rapid reforestation of burnt, fragmented and degraded forest lands.”

WHY USE DRONES

FASTER

Drones accomplish afforestation (planting) tasks much sooner when compared to humans.

SUSTAINABLE

Multiple tree varieties can be selected based on nativity to put an end to monoculture plantations.

EFFECTIVE

Coating of seeds with healthy growth catalysts like soil, vermi-compost, and other nutrients increases the success of seed germination.

EFFICIENT

Difficult to access terrains like hilly regions- moderate forest areas can be accessed and replanted with ease. Moreover, seeds can be sown at the right time just before the monsoon season begins.

Biodiversity loss is just as alarming for business and humanity as it is for the environment.

Fragmented forests lead to drier soils and greater susceptibility to wild and anthropogenic fires.

Biodiversity loss and ecosystem collapse is one of the top five threats humanity will face in the next ten years.

How much Forest did the world loose in 2019?

With disappearance of 43 million hectares, forest loss bigger than Germany.

About 43 million hectares of forest lost in 14 years.

Scientists fear deforestation, fires and Covid-19 could create a 'perfect storm' in the Amazon.
