Working for Change
Italy’s coast is WonderFull
The Mediterranean has been home to incredible biodiversity and heavy pollution in recent years. In 2019, a handful of organizations, including Getac, joined together in an initiative called WonderFull: The 7 Coasts of Italy. In an effort to bring awareness to our planet’s state of health, biological surveys and ecological research were conducted throughout Italy’s seven coasts. Getac’s rugged mobile devices were used by research ships to collect and analyze data on changes in species structure, coastal erosion and plastic particle pollution. As a result of the initiative, Italy is now implementing renewable energy along its coastlines.
Xtractor Around the World
In 2018, four tractors set out from Cape Town, South Africa to drive 8,000 km across the country to Pretoria, South Africa. Their mission? To bring awareness to agricultural and environmental issues and to forge a more respectful relationship with the planet. Getac supported this mission by providing rugged mobile equipment that kept the tractors and volunteer teams connected during the 50-day expedition. Ultimately, this initiative will improve South Africa’s community programs, schools and infrastructure.
Addressing marine debris: Tangaroa Blue Foundation
For more than six years, Getac has provided rugged mobile computers to Tangaroa Blue Foundation, a nonprofit organization working hard along the Australian coastlines to improve marine ecosystems and human health. Through the Australian Marine Debris Initiative (AMDI), Tangaroa Blue identifies waterway litter and stops the flow of trash at the source. Since 2004, they have removed more than 13 million pieces of debris from the Australian coastline.
