The project recently won a prize from the Wildlife Crime Tech Challenge, and Paso Pacifico hopes to use the winnings to perfect the design. The eggs debuted earlier this month at the SXSW festival, in Austin, Texas. The current model looks like a ping-pong ball bearing the Paso Pacifico logo, but designers will work with Hollywood studios to make them more realistic. When turtles begin nesting in July, rangers will plant the fake eggs in nests, where they will likely be poached, and then begin tracking where the eggs are taken. Authorities suspect that the poaches have well-developed networks with many different middle-men along the way, so they hope to uncover entire egg-poaching rings.
