EcoDefender is an innovative project designed to help identify and report invasive species in your community. According to the US Department of Agriculture (USDA), invasive species have contributed to the decline of 42% of U.S. endangered and threatened species, and invasives are in fact the main cause for 18% of those declines. Our platform employs computer vision and machine learning technology to quickly and accurately detect invasive plants and animals, allowing you to act as the defender of your ecosystem and instantly report any problematic non-native presence.

We are a group of high school students from BASIS International School Guangzhou passionate about programming and applying it for social good. Our goal in launching EcoDefender is to promote sustainable development of our ecosystems while encouraging the general public to take part in protecting their own. We raise awareness of the danger of invasive species and encourage prompt removal of invasives.
