navama® was founded in 2011 and has since been part in various successful conservation projects.
We gained global visibility in our developments and activities by using historical satellite AIS data for the management of sustainable fishery and of marine protected areas. This wonderful transparency project was born in a joined initiative with WWF, in particular the WWF Smart Fishing Initiative and is still growing for a positive and efficient change in marine resource management.
Solutions we find together. Our approach is partner oriented. We seek for each project a NGO, government or industrial partner to facilitate an effective change for more nature in modern live.
Today our main initiatives are TransparentSea.org together with WWF. The development of the analytical tool seeOcean for marine resource transparency and seeFish, a consumer focused platform for traceability from catch to plate, funded by esa and German Aerospace. venGo, a nature information platform with location based services, born in a joined project with 17 partners in: Mountain-river landscapes – living manifoldness from Ammersee to Zugspitze. And with a funding by Bundesamt für Naturschutz we do school projects linking new media with nature awareness and nature conservation.
AIS satellite technology, data analysis and software development are our core competences combined with a strong biological science background.
