Within 24 hours of the site creation the administrators of WildLeaks had a tip on illegal activity in animal trade. Twenty-four different cases of crimes against wildlife have been reported and that number is rising.
WildLeaks is a new site that uses technology from Tor to give whistle-blowers an outlet. Reports have come in from all over the world on a variety of problems.
Activities included elephant poaching, chimpanzee trafficking and illegal logging in a report by the Guardian. From individual animals to massive forests they have found and reported significant amounts of information that would have otherwise gone unnoticed.
If you are someone who knows of illegal activity in your area then you should contact Wildleaks as soon as you can. According to their claims they use the Tor multiple server routing technology to safely hide your identity. While people may know that the network exists tracking down individual contributors should be quite difficult.
It looks like the site will only be growing from here as they have significant backing from some major wildlife groups such as the Elephant Action League. It is a bit concerning that the members have revealed their identities and we wonder if there will be any backlash against them.
