Coders competing to create the best conservation tech for wildlife at the US State Department’s inaugural ‘Zoohackathon’ have been awarded first prize for an idea that will allow you and your mobile phone to help fight against the illegal wildlife trade.
Experts from ZSL will be among those supporting the app's invention, which will enable everyone with it to report wildlife crime anonymously via a simple text message.
Congratulations everyone who took on the challenge and to the winning team, Wildtrack!
Did you know that you can find lions living in India?
Asiatic lions used to roam right up to the edges of Europe’s boarders until their numbers dropped to as low as just 12 individuals. Now there are around 500 left in the wild in Gujarat, thanks to careful conservation work.
ZSL is supporting Asiatic lions in India through providing veterinary expertise, conservation tech and extensive training. #planetearth2
Have you ever heard of the olive-white eye?
This beautiful creature is the rarest of all land birds in Mauritius where we are fighting to keep it safe.
By carefully studying the only around 80 pairs that are left in the wild our researchers at the Institute of Zoology have discovered that invasive rats are a major threat to the species and have used their discoveries to develop tools for a long-term management plan for their survival.
