Google Drones for Curbing Illegal Poaching in Africa

Google Drones for Curbing Illegal Poaching in Africa

Google will fund drones that will be used to fight against poaching in Africa.

Unmanned aircrafts will be the newest weapon to fight against illegal poaching of wild animals in Africa like elephants and rhinos.

Google has said they will hand over a 5 million dollar grant to the World Wildlife Fund, or WWF, which they will use to buy a few drone aircrafts equipped with cameras that are going to be used to keep an eye on poachers that hunt the endangered animals for their ivory.

WWF currently has a fleet of tracking drones that are operating in Nepal, also in an effort to catch poachers.

Ian Morrison, another WWF spokesman told Mother Jones: “The poachers and the crime syndicates that fund them are getting more and more sophisticated, and it’s time for us to step up our game too, and level the playing field.”
Some of the grant money will also be used to fund wildlife tagging, sensors, and ranger monitoring software.

The grant is a part of Google’s Global Impact Award program, which is funding 23 million dollars to nonprofit groups, like the Geena Davis Institute on Gender and Media, and the charity called water, that develops technologies for use in countries that have limited access to water.
