Tiger_andyluckSick to death of wildlife crime? Crime Tech Challenge is an opportunity to pitch brains and modern technology against the bloody US $ 19 Billion illegal wildlife trade that is undermining decades of hard won nature conservation and funding criminal gangs and terrorist networks.

“The Challenge invites individuals and organizations from around the world to submit innovative science and technology solutions that can be applied to combat the illegal trade of marine and terrestrial wildlife.”

Visit Crime Tech Challenge website for more about this new initiative launched by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the National Geographic Society, the Smithsonian Institution, and TRAFFIC, aimed squarely at combating wildlife crime.
