If you're in London on Sat and fancy some of this, or know someone who 
would, that'd be grand! Hamish is going, so that's reason in itself.


Aptivate <http://aptivate.org/>have working with WWF 
<http://www.wwf.org.uk/> and TRAFFIC <http://www.traffic.org/> to create 
<http://www.aptivate.org/en/blog/2014/09/22/this-is-trademapper/>, an 
online data mapping tool to help scientists and conservationists track 
international movement of wildlife to help put a stop to illegal trade.

On November 8th, we are planning a Hackday to bring together others who 
believe in the cause to begin to improve and extend TradeMapper (or 
maybe to explore what other uses it can be put to).

Full details can be found on the Meetup page for the Hackday 

If you would like to come, please RSVP.  If you know others who might be 
interested, please forward the link to them or tweet it to your 
followers (use the hashtag #trademapper).

Or if you think you might like to help in the future but can't make it 
on the 8th, just sign up to the Meetup Group 
and we'll keep you informed about future events and other ways to 

Thanks and hope to see some of you on the 8th
