 The U.S. Agency for International Development is starting a competition to fight wildlife poaching(盗猎) and trafficking (非法交易) . USAID is asking people to submit ideas that can use science and technology to reduce the illegal activities . People or groups must write detailed descriptions of their suggestions and formally send them to wildlifecrimetech .org.
USAID is cooperating with the National Geographic Society , the Smithsonian Institution and the wildlife tracking (追踪) network TRAFFIC(非法交易) on the project . The agency says an idea will-scale (大规模的) actions against criminals . The agency will pick out the most valuable one and pay the winner up to $ 500,000 as a reward . The less valuable ideas will receive a smaller amount of prize money .
Michael Yates , the USAID mission director in Asia, says in recent years , poaching has been on the increase sharply and illegal traffic in protected animals has been quite common . Individuals and organizations are very helpful in tracking and catching the criminals . They know more ways t strengthen evidence against traffickers . And they also know how to recognize bad behavior in complicated cases .
USAID notes that it’s going to take joint action in each one of these areas to really address thsi problem . Only in this way can the illegal killing disappear eventually . And it’s something that needs to be considered immediately . The trend lines are just enormously troublesome concerning the rise in poaching .
However , the government cannot solve the problem on its own . Experts call on every member of society to take an active part once a solution is found . That’s the key t preventing poaching completely . To a certain extent ,it’s a wise idea for USAID to seek opinions from the public . Besides , the high prize money can help arouse the public’s enthusiasm for participation .
