I am writing to ask the group what are the most pressing challenges they have that could potentially be solved by technology. I am a technologist, but also have experience investigating cyber crime and developing intelligence for law enforcement. I am keen to put my skills to use and help with consercation if I can. I also have a few ideas of my own that I would like to share for feedback.
Thanks a lot.

I just registered today as I’m looking for technologies that can (a) help detect wire snares and steel leg-hold traps in a jungle setting, and (b) locate animals in the dark and/or thick foliage.
My work is animal rescue in northern Taiwan, and the bulk of our rescues are dogs, cats, and wildlife maimed by poachers’ traps and snares. I need to locate injured or trapped animals in the jungle and also find snares and traps so that we can destroy them or set up trail cameras to capture video evidence of the poachers doing their thing.
So I guess I’m also interested in trail cameras that can transmit footage without my having to physically collect it each time.
Not sure if you can help but grateful for any suggestions.
