Wildlife Hackathon


Zoohackathon [Oct 20-21 2018 @ Starling tix] brings together developers, designers, project managers, and wildlife enthusiasts to create new applications and tools to help end wildlife trafficking. Past winners:
  • 2016: SafeSouvenirs - Souvenirs you should not buy 
  • 2017: ODINN - Save 98% of rangers' time by autodetecting poachers in photos

Tigger Calling Unicorns
A seach for 'wildlife tech' and 'wildlife startups' returned no results (no unicorns in saving tigger?). 'Conservation tech' did yield one article:
  • Camera traps - Get a photo handle on wildlife to aid conservancy
  • Acoustic monitors - In the vast oceans, it's easier to hear than see
  • Portable DNA analysis - Is that meat or bush meat?
  • Sniffer dogs - Deft in finding droppings for DNA analysis
  • Big data - Includes image recognition to identify animals automatically
  • Aerial Imagery - Drones, satellites to count tree, species, intrusions
  • Apps - Teach kds conservation; report poaching, dubious merchandise
  • Education - Examples: eBird (bird watching); Wildbook (conservation)
  • Crowdsourcing - Get the crowd (eg jungle hikers) to help out
