Predators (stoats, possums, rats) are destroying our wild life and current ways of killing the pests are very manual, toxic and expensive
There must be a way to use modern technology to dramatically improve the productivity of conserving nature
The Cacophony Project is an open source project that uses solar powered smart phones as an IT network in the bush to monitor and potentially help kill predators
Aim is to make this a best practice open source project so all NZers passionate about conservation and restoration can contribute and together we can restore the bird song Cacophony
