Wild Night Out, Innovative Tech Saves Species Fundraiser
December 2, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm - $25
The Global March for Elephants & Rhinos ATX (501c3 non-profit), presents the revolutionary work of Air Shepherd:
“We use drones that can fly at night and find poachers before they kill. It works. It’s proven. The poaching STOPS.” Presenter, Robert Hannaford, Technical Director of Air Shepherd.
“The rhino poaching boom has increased 9000% in South Africa alone. Across Africa, an elephant is poached every 14 minutes, a rhino every 7 hours. At this rate, both species will be extinct within 10 years.”
Learn about Drones, DNA Analysis, Acoustic Traps, Thermal Imaging, GPS-Enabled Cameras and other evolving technology critical to stop criminal syndicates in their ongoing attempt to poach animals for the multi-billion dollar illegal wildlife trade.
Program: Speakers, VIP Dinner, Exhibitors, Tusker Film Trailer, Music, Art, Appetizers, Cocktails, Silent Auction, African Wildlife Safari Raffle, Door Prizes, Family Friendly.
