    Story

    PROJECT CamTag® exists for one reason, to design a Camera satellite tag - CamTag® - to help capture images of those responsible for the illegal killing of OUR (yours and mine) Birds of Prey (BoP) here in the UK. None of the UK's Raptor (Bird of Prey) species are exempt from persecution.

    Everyone should be able to enjoy seeing & watching these magnificent BoP in the wild, unhindered by the hand of man, free from illegal persecution, habitat destruction and exploitation.

    My name is Peter Howe , a conservationist with a passion for birds, campaigning and helping to protect our environment, I have set up a Not-for-Profit (3rd Eye Technology Ltd. – 3ET) to take this concept forward. Imagine a backpack so small, with a built-in camera on it, able to transmit images and accurate coordinates via satellites in as near real time as possible. 3ET aims to develop this innovative concept using ground-breaking state of the art technology, for BoP from the size of Hen Harriers to Eagles.

    There are numerous issues surrounding Raptor persecution and nearly all instances involve intentional illegal acts. Persecution is happening all around the UK, whether it's a rogue pigeon fancier shooting or poisoning Peregrine Falcons that take out that valuable racing pigeon, or a 'bad apple' gamekeeper killing Golden Eagles, Hen Harriers, Goshawks, Red Kites and more, on Driven Grouse Moors (DGM), or someone sitting in their back garden taking pot shots with an air rifle, they are all WILDLIFE CRIMES and they are all AGAINST THE LAW!

    None of the UK's Raptor (Bird of Prey) species are exempt from persecution. Everyone should be able to enjoy seeing & watching these magnificent BoP in the wild

    PROJECT CamTag® is divided into two stages. Stage 1 is the Proof of Concept (POC) commonly known as a Feasibility Study (FS). The cost for the study has been established at £12,000.00. Included in the study will be a cost forecast for Stage 2. The FS can only start once I have received funds from crowdfunding, grants, match-funding and donations. This is where I ask you the community to get involved. I need your help, or rather CamTag® needs your help, technology is expensive, so together we can make this happen. I am doing this for the community, by that I mean for everyone. I am prepared to give my time for free; this will be my contribution to conservation, what I ask for in return is a small donation from you. At this difficult time we all have to watch the pennies, and at times it seems there is always a campaign that is asking for financial support in one way or another, which probably is the case, but whatever amount you can afford to donate will be greatly appreciated.

      Dear supporters Thank you for your donations. We still have a lot to raise. Please keep your confirmation email from JustGiving as proof you made your donation. If for any reason the project ends before we can raise enough funds to continue with the feasibility study, then you will have the opportunity to seek reimbursement less any costs. Please see our website Raptor3ET.com for details. Please spread the word about #ProjectCamTag our Raptors need this project to get under way as soon as possible, but we still need more funds. Regards Peter

      3rd Eye Technology wish to thank you for your support, we have now extended our crowdfunder page until March '22 and have enabled the monthly donation option too. This will allow us more time to reach our goal. There is a way to go yet, and we still need support from the community i.e. community = anyone that wants to help our wildlife, in particular the UK's birds of prey. Please continue to spread the word about PROJECT Camtag, your support is invaluable and much appreciated Thanks again Peter
