Rainforest Connection | Protecting rainforests with real-time data

The biodiversity of Peru's Alto Mayo rainforest is slowly being whittled away by systemic illegal logging, poaching, and drug trafficking. Working in conjunction with Conservation International (CI) and Peruvian government rangers, Rainforest Connection is testing an acoustic alert system that listens for telltale indicators of deforestation (chainsaws) or animal poaching (motorcycles) - as well as for trucks and vehicles that indicate narco-trafficking.
