About Cecil Alliance

Cecil was a lion who lived in the Hwange National Park in Matabeleland North, Zimbabwe. He was a major attraction visited by many tourists who wanted a glimpse of the famous lion in its natural habitat. This all ended when on the 1st July 2015, an American dentist paid 50,000 dollars to get a permit and for his recreation lured Cecil into a trap and shot him with an arrow, only to track the wounded animal for a further 12 hours before firing the finishing arrow. Cecil Alliance is our response.

The Cecil Alliance provides state of the art technology to create a better world for all animals including wildlife, zoos, pets, livestock, and sports.

CAF aims to be a global standard and to that end is set to a horizontal structure, meaning that rather than building into one niche or going deep in one industry, the CAF encompasses a number of technologies that can be used across a wide variety of verticals. The CAF aims to have a wide focus without preconceived notions on how to use the technology, also involving the community in this creative process. In doing so the CAF makes it possible for developers in different animal based industries to tackle specific issues within the larger animal kingdom. For example, MustangChain, which is a CAF vertical and new blockchain project on VeChain Thor, is a focused approach to the issues of transparency and inaccessibility of equine data. CAF encourages other such vertical approaches with the use of CAF technology.
