All around the world people commit various offenses against animals, every day, every minute. Some of these cases surface and we hear of them on the news or on the web, but due to the continuous flow of information they immediately disappear and are therefore forgotten. There are many cases that don’t even reach the public sphere. This situation prevents us from knowing the true extent of what is really happening in the world, as far as the welfare of animals, and also prevents us and the proper authorities from addressing the various phenomena.
This is where NIGMA comes in. NIGMA is a new, one of a kind, database designed to address this problem. This system gathers every piece of information, any way possible, regarding criminal, immoral and “un-kosher” activities against animals, wherever they are. This system enables us to paint an accurate and true picture of occurrences around the world and to react appropriately.
*Nigma walckenaeri is a green cribellate spider up to five millimetres long, the largest of the family Dictynidae. The spider catches insects, sometimes larger than itself, in its web, which it builds on the surface of leaves. (Wikipedia)
