Wildlife Crime Tech Challenge – Deadline 30 June

Posted on Updated on

Thousands of dead pangolins were seized in Medan by the Indonesian National Police together with WCS’s Wildlife Crime Unit in April 2015.

New ideas needed to stop species extinction from the illegal wildlife trade. The picture above is just one of many seizures that has been made this year alone, and we’re not even half way through the year.

The Challenge is now accepting Concept Notes. They will award multiple Grand Prizes worth up to $500,000 to applicants with the most impactful and scalable solutions to combat wildlife trafficking.

They are looking for solutions from all stages of innovation that apply to both marine and terrestrial wildlife that help:
1. Detect transit routes
2. Strengthen forensic evidence and data sharing
3. Reduce consumer demand
4. Tackle corruption
