Dendra Systems Raises $15.76M in Series B Funding for Large-Scale Reseeding Efforts


Dendra Systems, a Climate technology company headquartered in Oxford, has secured $15.76 million in Series B Funding to further develop its ecology platform, which leverages AI and drones for large-scale land restoration through reseeding initiatives.

Dendra Systems has already demonstrated successful land restorations across diverse environments, including arid, tropical, and coastal regions, ranging from desert ecosystems to mangrove forests. Collaborating with major mining companies, the company is actively involved in land restoration projects, notably in the UAE, supporting the nation’s ambitious goal of restoring 100 million mangroves by 2030 through the analysis of 20,000 hectares of coastal habitat.

The company offers an end-to-end RestorationOSTM solution, incorporating high-resolution data capture, drone-based seeding, and an AI-enabled ecosystem insights platform. This innovative approach facilitates targeted and rapid deployment of restoration efforts at scale, accompanied by ongoing monitoring, management, and reporting throughout multi-year projects.

Dr. Susan Graham, CEO of Dendra Systems, expressed pride in securing support from experienced investors for the company’s growth trajectory. The funding will enable Dendra Systems to expand its AI-driven restoration solutions to diverse ecosystems worldwide, contributing to the reversal of biodiversity loss and mitigation of climate change effects.

John Higelin, Partner at Zouk Capital, emphasized the urgency of revitalizing the planet’s ecosystems and praised Dendra Systems for its proactive approach to ecosystem monitoring and restoration on a global scale. Zouk Capital is leading the Series B round, underscoring its commitment to supporting Dendra’s mission to broaden its impact and address pressing environmental challenges.
