    May 18: Huawei and Partners Announce Yucatan Wildlife Conservation Findings

    A team of nature conservation experts have identified at least five jaguars in Dzilam State Reserve in Yucatan, Mexico.

    Enabled by Huawei’s cloud platform and AI solution, the team have identified two adult males, one adult female, and two cubs as part of a Tech4Nature project launched by IUCN and Huawei in Dzilam State Reserve in 2022.  

    Prior to the project, experts did not know whether the reserve was home to jaguars and if so, how many there were.

    With 30,000 images, 550,000 audio recordings, and extensive video footage collected and analyzed to date, the Tech4Nature partners have identified 119 species. These include 88 birds, 22 mammals, five reptiles, and four amphibians. Of these, 34 species are on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.

    The data also provides a rich array of data-driven insights for researchers to develop conservation measures based on a far more complete understanding of the ecosystem as a whole.
