The RADARSAT Constellation Mission and RADARSAT-2 satellites, for example, help in performing marine surveillance and environmental monitoring in Canada as well as the world. The Canadian Forest Service works along with the CSA to use data produced by satellites to map and classify forests in the country as well as observe their health and structure. The images taken by the satellites enables to track the changes occurring in a particular area.
The Canadian Space Agency (CSA) tweeted on how satellites can be used to monitor and protect ecosystems from space. Remote sensing can be used to gather data on wildlife and national parks, while Global Positioning System (GPS) systems can be used to map and track different species.
