Technology picks up and transmits “call of the wild” to stop illegal deforestation
- Published on
In the heart of a remote area in northern Brazil, the Amazon rainforest hums with the sound of birds and insects. In the background, faint but distinct, another more ominous noise is heard — the buzz of a chainsaw.
That sound emanates from ongoing illegal logging activity in the Amazon basin, which has surged in recent years.
