Google Launches Anti-Poacher Drones

Discussion in 'Locker Room' started by Danielson, Dec 8, 2012.

  1. Google-funded UAVs, or drones, are being deployed in Africa to monitor regions where poaching has run rampant to curb the killing of endangered animals.
    The juggernaut has given a $5 million grant to the World Wildlife Fund to purchase a fleet of drones for use in Africa. The idea is that the WWF will track people who illegally hunt endangered animals in the wild.
    Calling then “conservation drones,” they are light enough to be launched by hand (i.e., throw the sucker and it just keeps on flying), and can fly at about 18 miles an hour, at about 650 feet high, for an hour or so. Cameras on the drones will allow rangers to track poachers in hard-to-traverse terrain.
