Air Shepherd DronesAmount Raised: $325,818
Air Shephard Drones were launched in response to illegal poaching in southern Africa, a crisis that killed 40,000 elephants and 1,200 rhino in a single year. Air Shepherd Drones use infrared cameras and GPS to tackle after dark-poaching between the hours of 6:30 and 8:30 pm.
Air Shepher carried out a pilot phase in southern Africa over the last two years, which saw more than 400 missions and logged 1,000 hours of flying time over a region where as many as 19 rhinos were normally poached each month. It says during its testing period over six months, not a single rhino was killed.
