Damage by wild animals to cultivated fields is the main cause of profit-loss for farmers in Europe, causing an average loss of 20 % of harvests.
Planting trees is an economically viable solution to combat the climate crisis. However, in Sweden alone wild animals destroy small new planted trees worth 1.2 billion EUR every year.
There is a need for better wildlife mapping in certain areas. Wildlife-vehicle collisions with trains and cars also cause invaluable harm to animals and humans worldwide. The total yearly costs of railway accidents with wildlife in Europe is estimated at about 2.5 billion EUR.
At FLOX we are actively seeking individuals who dare to believe in the autonomous future and human-wildlife coexistence.
If you want to make an impact, and have a chance to revolutionize the way we share landscapes and natural resources through autonomous and sustainable wildlife management, then delay no further and apply now by e-mailing to [email protected]
Expanding agriculture to keep up with the growing global population has been the biggest driver of destruction of the worlds wildlands
The world is changing. Today, we live in highly transformed landscape in a planet with a biodiversity crisis. Around the world, as human population continues to expand, and natural wild places are reduced, people and wildlife are increasingly coming into conflict over living space and food.
It might be wild boars destroying crops in Sweden, elephants in India eating pineapples, European bears and wolves killing livestock or elk collisions with trains in Norway. The problem is universal and is bad news for all concerned. The impacts are worth billions and increasing each year due to climate change and deforestation. People lose their crops and livestock and therefore a source of income and food security, property, and sometimes their lives. The animals, some of which are already threatened or even endangered, are sometimes killed in retaliation or to prevent future conflicts. The effects of climate change are expected to make the problem worse if we do not act now.
We need new solutions for proactive conservation to prevent habitat losses to agricultural expansion. In recent years, the expansion of agricultural lands into areas rich in biodiversity has led to a conservation dilemma between the need for food security for an expanding human population and the goal of conserving species and habitat to curb biodiversity loss.
- Farmland expansion is a significant risk to our planet’s health
- This has already come at a huge cost to the planet’s biodiversity. In the last 50,000 years – and as humans settled in regions around the world – wild mammal biomass has declined by 85%.
87.7% of species are projected to lose habitat to agricultural expansion by 2050
– with 1,280 species projected to lose ≥25% of their habitat
According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), if current trends hold, by 2050 the world’s arable land will increase by some 70 million hectares, and much of the new farmland will be on areas that are currently forested.”
The projected loss of millions of square kilometres of natural ecosystems to meet future demand for food, animal feed, fibre and bioenergy crops is likely to massively escalate threats to wildlife and biodiversity and functioning of remaining natural ecosystems.
Our mission is to provide new ways to coexist with wildlife in a variety of shared landscapes
FLOX started no longer after seeing the human-wildlife conflict and damages caused by wild animals with our own eyes in the farms of our relatives. We decided to start Flox in order to support stakeholders in the areas of agriculture, forestry and infrastructure that want to adopt sustainable, cost-effective solutions for coexistence with wildlife that leads to everything from increased agricultural production by preventing food loss to collision avoidance with vehicles.
Using Flox results in saved costs, increased yields and local value capture for a variety of stakeholders. We help you to sustain certain human livelihoods and preserve particular species at the same time. We are on a mission to restore the balance and provide mutually-beneficial solutions that benefit both the animals and local human communities.
We started off in 2020 and since then we have developed, tested and validated our solution together with various farmers, landowners and researchers all over Europe and Northern US.
- Feeding a growing population by maximizing production
- Preventing further human expansion to wildlands
- Coexisting with wildlife in animal-friendly way
