Not everyone has a conservationist friend to help them when they are on holidays, and those friends also need to sleep. We thought there was a need for getting information about illegal wildlife products for tourists in an easy way. With no need to install new apps.
What it does
We've created a Facebook bot that tries to help you to find out whether what you are about to consume is an illegal wildlife product and gives you additional information and an option to report it.
How we built it
With love, wildlife information in order to create the different possible answer flows and chatFuel to create the Facebook bot.
Challenges we ran into
Lack of time and resources to feed more information into the bot. With more knowledgeable people in different kinds of products, the bot could've been much more intelligent.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We built an easy and practical tool that can be used by everybody and you don't need to download any extra app as it works with Facebook as a normal conversation.
What we learned
How easy it is to find illegal products in some markets.
What's next for Don't eat that
Scaling and more possible integrations with wild live databases.
