Bio-logging tags warn animals of human threats
We’re constantly looking for innovative ways to improve the Springwise experience, and so we’re now introducing BeeLine Reader, a new technology that helps you read more quickly and efficiently.

Animal habitats face a number of threats and many innovations seek to improve conservation efforts. An app from the US uses facial recognition to identify endangered primates. Another example is sensor devices from Brazil which monitor and protect Brazilian rainforests. A new device to prevent animal extinction has been developed by postgraduate designers and engineers from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College London. Feeling that current conservation efforts were too passive, their device, Augmented Nature, intervenes in nature conservation. The bio-logging tags serve two purposes. They monitor animals and environments and they actively alert animals when there are human threats nearby.
