To reduce the degradation and loss of fragile ecosystems, humans must monitor and restrict destructive practices.

GIS provides a tool for scientists, decision makers, and citizens to collaborate in ways that positively influence the environment. NGO, such as Conservation International and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), use GIS to locate and prioritize the world's at-risk hot spots. Esri has been a longtime supporter of these programs, providing GIS software and training for assessment, conservation, and remediation.

GIS maps are used as educational tools. In some developing countries, local citizens have never seen a map of their regions. Understanding how they play a role in the environments that surround them, local peoples can develop strategies for sustainable existence.
