What if a used cell phone could be turned into a conservation tool that prevents deforestation from illegal logging? National Geographic explorer and engineer Topher White offers a simple and scalable way to stop tropical deforestation that does just that and in real-time. White's technology could show a way to combat both deforestation and climate change that any country struggling with illegal logging can deploy. This is really 'appropriate technology' in action!
