International and local agencies have been searching for new ways to combat threats.

Unfortunately for those in the field, we see that each country, ministry, conservation agency, park, site and international fund are creating their own individual process, their own path and plan to use technology.  This lack of cooperation is evident in the field as multiple "ideas and solutions" are introduced and none is actually working or producing results.  It is a sad sight to see how resources are divided between parallel projects instead of cooperating and creating a realistic mutual strategy and plan.

 

The test site project is in the making -

An African site/s where technologies relevant for humanitarian or conservation causes can come, openly test, integrate and display their actual performance for representatives of humanitarian and conservation agencies, projects, parks and activities that can then make an informative decision on their path.  Creating a base of cooperation and development for us all.

Wildeas Test site

for humanitarian and conservation technologies.

"More than anything the planet needs our brains. For all the money in the world will make not a bit of difference unless we engage in the kind of results-oriented analyses, the due diligence, the careful terrain and manpower assessments, the drafting of targeted solutions, and the pre-deployment testing of technology that is par for the course among businessmen who wouldn't think of demanding anything less than the best return on investment.

 

I believe that technology has tools, which, selected properly and put into the hands of enforcement and prevention workers in the field, can put them on the proactive side of wildlife crime prevention and humanitarian assistance and protection - NOW. 

Together we can ensure that tools are chosen and deployed in a manner that matches the urgent requirements of each unique situation while empowering operatives on the ground with actual effective capabilities."
