Google is in collaboration with the world wildlife Fund has decided “to raise awareness about animals at risk”. One of the results was adding to the “Documents” of 13 new avatars depicting endangered species. They can be used by anonymous users.
This feature was in “Documents” before, but now to the capybara, a dog and other animals joined the blue whale (lat. Balaenóptera músculus), Cheetah (lat. Acinonyx jubatus), the African desert elephant (lat. Loxodonta africana), Fosse (lat. Cryptoprocta ferox), tempera gray shark (lat. Carcharhinus amblyrhynchos), walrus (lat. Odobenus rosmarus), the African wild dog (lat. Lycaon pictus), narwhal (lat. Edulis monoceros), Sumatran orangutan (lat. Pongo abelii), Pacific bluefin (lat. Thunnus orientalis), Emperor penguin (lat. Aptenodytes forsteri), black bear (lat. Ursus maritimus) and Amur tiger (lat. Panthera tigris tigris).
From this list, the least known of fossa – a representative of Madagascar fiverr and the largest carnivore on the island. Externally, it resembles a small mountain lion and earlier wrongly referred to the family cat. Natural enemies in the wild this is no beast, but as the fossa often attack poultry and small farm animals, in response they kill the farmers. Especially noticeable, at 30%, the population has declined between 1987 and 2008, and now, according to rough estimates, the planet was no more than 2500 individuals.
Google also plans to help the conservation of wildlife with the help of modern technology: analyzing search requests related to poaching, the company will alert the organization about the wildlife trade. Another algorithm is to view pictures taken by camera-traps for the determination of rare animals on a random photo.
