Rainforest Connection (RFCx) transforms recycled cell-phones into autonomous, solar-powered listening devices that can monitor and pinpoint chainsaw activity at great distance.
This changes the game by providing the world’s first real-time logging detection system, pinpointing deforestation activity as it occurs, and providing the data openly, freely, and immediately to anyone around the world.
For the first time on a scalable level, responsible agents can arrive on the scene in time to interrupt the perpetrators and stop the damage, and the world can listen in as it occurs.
Let’s visit the RFCx web page, and help them rising the budget they need to monitor Indonesian rainforests! (foundrising on kikstart) If enough money is raised two other projects in Africa and the Amazon rainforest are planned.
