HANOI, April 22, 2015 -- On Earth Day today, the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), in partnership with the U.S. National Geographic Society, the Smithsonian Institution, and the wildlife trade monitoring network TRAFFIC, will launch the Wildlife Crime Tech Challenge to reward innovative science and technology solutions that help combat wildlife trafficking. This global competition will award four prizes of up to $500,000 for innovative science and technology solutions to fight this increasingly serious crime.

“There has been a sharp increase in the illegal wildlife trade in recent years, and there is growing consensus that traditional models of conservation are insufficient to protect biodiversity and preserve ecosystems,” said USAID Vietnam Mission Director Joakim Parker. “By harnessing the power of science and technology, we hope this initiative hopes to overcome key barriers in the fight against wildlife trafficking.”
