Exciting, innovative, world-changing technology that connects people to nature to save life on Earth.

Our portfolio


Raising the value of nature through innovative technology

  • The Bio-Expertise Engine: An Artificial Collective Super-Intelligence (ACSI) platform that engages expert communities to score nature observations and reward expertise. The system is finding a new species, undescribed by science, almost every day.
  • QuestaGame: A popular mobile game that turns nature discovery and education into the adventure of a lifetime. Available on iOS and Android devices.
  • BioSMART: A dynamic, real-time bureau of global nature data. The BioSMART technology connects global nature data systems – and their communities – in real time, to produce the most accurate and comprehensive measurement of natural capital.
  • IndigiQuest (coming soon): Helping bring indigenous knowledge and science to the forefront of natural capital valuation and management.
  • Guardians of Earth. A real-world AR game that engages players in nature conservation.
  • building technology that improves the quality of life for humanity
  • rewarding human learning that contributes to the social good
  • enabling distributed ownership and inclusive decision-making
  • supporting real-world, on-the-ground conservation
  • avoiding projects, designs or motivations that may cause harm
  • ensuring the asset ecosystem is environmentally friendly
  • thinking differently, more urgently, more inclusively, on a planetary scale
  • integrating into scalable, sustainable, financial and market solutions
  • developing equitable, decentralised, cross-border forms of governance

“QuestaGame engages people – young and old – with nature, awakening a deep appreciation for all the amazing life forms, often found in their own backyards. It not only transforms players into researchers, scientists, custodians of life on Earth, but importantly contributes to official citizen science portals recording actual sightings so that it is so much more than a game.”

I recently discovered a new species of fly from a record posted via the Bio-Expertise Engine.

Great way to get kids outdoors, they're always spotting animals and are getting great at identifying species. Way better than looking for imaginary creatures!

Very proud of what the @CharlesSturtUni #QuestaGame clan put up for the #UniBioQuest. We learned a heap about what calls our campus home.

Dr. James TurnerCharles Stuart University

It was a great experience competing in the BioQuest in April. It totally changed our way of thinking about biodiversity. Now we know there is lot of other life out there apart from human life. We are determined to protect it.

I haven't had this much fun ever! If you like taking pics of the outdoors (plants, bugs, wildlife) you are going to love this.

Great biodiversity monitoring tool for all ages. Have fun whilst recording biodiversity.
