Data sourcing, analysis and reporting are some of the tools Oxpeckers uses to track and expose eco-offences across international borders. Complex investigative stories are aided visually by using data-based infographics, animated maps and data visualisation, to augment more traditional story packages.
Oxpeckers is developing a comprehensive database of eco-offences as a result of our investigations. We share these data sets with our users, where possible, to promote transparency and environmental sustainability.
