Wildlife Crime / Feed

Wildlife crime is a complicated challenge, so it's no wonder that the conservation technology community has explored solutions with every type of technology, all with the aim of predicting, preventing, and stopping crimes like poaching, illegal logging and fishing, and the sale of animal products like ivory.

Hello.  I have reviewed the questions this am and all the questions on the survey that force a response should have a N/A or "I don't know" option.  That said, there are still some bugs that I have found with the survey.  Please email me at [email protected] if you encounter any more issues and I will be happy to address them promptly.  Thank you very much for taking the time to complete the survey.
