Social media is one of the centers of animal trafficking. Through machine learning, ecologist Enrico Di Minin's research group aims to develop tools to better uncover the trafficking process from among the data mass of social media: “To protect animals, we must interfere with the supply chain.” Di Minin was recently awarded an ERC Starting Grant. The European Research Council only grants funding for the very best.
