We are very pleased to support this very exciting project.
Poachers operate under the cover of night, and until now, rangers have not had an effective way to find them before they kill. We fly drones, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that have infrared cameras and GPS on them and can send back thermal images of animals . . . and poachers. They’re electric, silent and invisible but provide the information operators use to rapidly vector rangers to the location of the poacher before he kills.
It works. Flying in one area where as many as 19 rhinos were killed each month, there have been no deaths – for six months. None at all.
