WWF’s Wildlife Crime Technology Project takes flight with help from a Google Global Impact Award
It’s four o’clock in the morning and the cold, dry desert air offers a jolt to a team of conservationists, wildlife managers and technology experts gathered in Namibia’s Waterberg Plateau Park. They are testing a suite of integrated technologies in an effort to protect threatened wildlife—including rhinos, elephants and other iconic species. About a year ago, WWF received a Google Global Impact Award grant to launch WWF’s Wildlife Crime Technology Project. Today, the project is literally taking flight.
