Dendra systems secures $15M Series B for reseeding at scale

Oxford-based climate tech Dendra Systems has secured $15.76M in Series B Funding to develop its ecology platform which uses AI and drones to restore and rehabilitate huge swathes of land by reseeding. 

They have completed successful restorations across arid, tropical and coastal environments, from desert ecosystems to mangrove forests.

Dendra Systems work with a number of major mining companies to restore land, including in the UAE where Dendra is supporting the UAE’s goal to restore 100 Million Mangroves by 2030 by analysing 20,000 hectares of coastal habitat.

The company provides an end-to-end RestorationOSTM solution to restore nature, powered by high-resolution data capture and drone-based seeding, and a comprehensive AI-enabled ecosystem insights platform. Dendra's innovative approach is able to achieve targeted, rapid deployment of restoration efforts at scale, in addition to ongoing monitoring, management and reporting for the duration of multi-year projects.

CEO Dr Susan Graham said: "We are immensely proud of securing the support of these experienced and supportive investors as we embark on this next phase of growth. This funding will enable us to bring our AI-driven restoration solutions to more ecosystems around the world, helping to reverse biodiversity loss and mitigate the effects of climate change. 

“Our RestorationOSTM technology and approach represent a game-changing opportunity for environmental monitoring and restoration, and we are excited to be able to double down on our efforts to empower environmental teams to reverse these global trends."

John Higelin, Partner at Zouk Capital, commented: "The drive to revitalise our planet's ecosystems is among the most pressing challenges of our era. As the global community strives towards environmental sustainability, Dendra Systems is tackling the critical task of ecosystem monitoring and restoration head-on and at scale. Zouk Capital is delighted to lead this Series B round, supporting Dendra's mission to expand their impact globally. "
