Tracking Poachers with Artificial Intelligence

The Problem: Poaching is reaching epidemic proportions and placing iconic mammals at risk of extinction within our lifetime. While new technologies have emerged to track and analyze contraband from the illegal wildlife trade, there are no affordable technologies that help law enforcement effectively locate poachers before they reach their target animals.

Our Solution: TrailGuard (AI) Artificial Intelligence Cameras in the wild. InnovaConservation is funding these amazing face recognition cameras to capture poachers on the hunt before they make their kill.

Innova is also working on the development of a smaller, more effective and cost-efficient version that detects human imagesĀ and relays their pictures back to par
