CCRT Collaboration with Intelesense Technologies Featured in Case Study

The Center for Conservation Research and Training's (CCRT) successful, on-going collaborative effort on the island of Kauaʻi with Intelesense Technologies, a manufacturer of wireless environmental sensors and sensor management devices, was recently featured in a case study published by Intelesense. 

Started in 2009, the collaborative project involving CCRT, Intelesense Technologies, and The Waipā Foundation, a local non-profit group, has been monitoring climate in the valley, as well as water quality and flows in Waipā stream with the purpose of determining the impact of human activities in the valley, and providing critical information for water resource management and long-term agricultural plans by the residents of Waipā valley.
