Community technology initiatives can create extraordinary solutions, but it can be hard to know where to take them from there. 9Wire can help scale these concepts, benefiting the wider ecology.

Working to bring birdsong back to local forest was the brainchild behind The Cacophony Project; an idea that could help all of New Zealand.


We have been enchanted by our native birdsong since we arriving in New Zealand hundreds of years ago. But over time, humans negatively impacted the environment, leaving fewer native birds around for us to hear their song.

Traditional conservation methods have attempted to reverse the trend of declining numbers without success. The Cacophony Project has developed a set of technologies that has the potential to make predator trapping thousands of times more efficient.

Does your community have an innovative technical solution to improve the environment, but is unsure where to turn next for help?

Let 9Wire help you!
