Technology picks up and transmits “call of the wild” to stop illegal deforestation

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.

In response, Rainforest Connection (RFCx), a small California nonprofit organization, is deploying bio-acoustic technology to stop such deforestation — in Brazil and elsewhere — in partnership with local communities and authorities to end illegal deforestation in real-time.
