SkyTruth is a technology-driven nonprofit with a mission to protect the environment by making more of it visible. They do this by using satellite imagery and remote sensing data to identify and monitor threats to the planet’s natural resources such as offshore drilling and oil spills, urban sprawl, fracking, mountaintop removal mining, and overfishing of the oceans. They are driven by the belief that better transparency leads to better management and better outcomes. By sharing their findings – stunning imagery and robust science-based data – with the public for free, they move policy makers, governments and corporations towards more responsible behavior in the environment. They arm citizen activists with the tools they need to be more effective advocates. They also provide researchers and scientists with critical data that can inform groundbreaking work – and, notably, aid in the effort to begin asking a new set of questions.Something looks off?
