    You can also donate a smartphone to The Second Nature project by recent ITP grad Mark Breneman: http://www.thesecondnatureproject.com/
    "Consumers can signup and donate their phones to be deployed into the wild under the supervision of wildlife researchers. When phone takes a picture it notifies the user letting them see how their donation is working."
