High Tech Meets African Rhino

As you probably already know, there has been an epidemic of rhino poaching in recent months and we are doing everything we can to protect rhino at Ol Pejeta. There are just seven northern white rhinos left in the world, and four of these call Ol Pejeta Conservancy home. This isn’t just about life and death, it’s about the survival of a species.

At Ol Pejeta we are turning to high technology to protect our rhinos. We have teamed up with Unmanned Innovation Inc. to create unmanned aerial vehicles (drones) that can observe and track wildlife.

We are looking to fund our first drone and are offering a number of rewards for people who buy into the programme. They also make a great gift. If you are interested, please check out our IndieGoGo page to find out more and get involved:
