The SMART Approach

The SMART approach covers three areas: software, capacity building, and site-based protection standards.

The SMART Tool is open source, non-proprietary, and freely available. The Approach is supported long-term by a collaboration and is based on a set of common principles for improved site-based conservation effectiveness, to enable future development and adaptations to meet the evolving needs of users.

More importantly, SMART is easy to use

At its core, SMART consists of a software application that enables you to collect, store, communicate, and evaluate ranger-based data on: patrol efforts, patrol results, and threat levels.

It’s time to get SMART about conservation. Learn how you or your organization can get involved and how to make SMART work for you.
