Carrier Pigeon Network

Communication issues constitute 50% of UNICEF’s 10 Challenges. Improve communication and the other challenges will be easier to overcome.

Therefore, we develop a network of carrier pigeons to carry information, data and medicine across developing nations.

Pigeons are a fast, cheap, and sustainable way of transmitting information and small payloads over long distances.

In 2009, a race was held in Durban, South Africa, between a carrier pigeon and an ADSL line to see which would transmit 4GB of data faster. The pigeon won.
