Nomination of the week: Tiger Penis Project
Can lab-grown tech save our endangered animals?

Wildlife poaching is a global problem that needs to stop. But, sadly, many rare animal parts are still seen as ‘essential’ for traditional medicines. While education can help, many argue that we need alternative solutions if we really want to save our wildlife. The Tiger Penis Project, by social designer Kuang-yi Ku, explores the idea of growing these sought-after animals parts in the lab, merging elements of Asian traditions and Western technologies.
