In partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Service, a public-private sector consortium is designing, developing and deploying an impactful, cost-effective and bottom-up technological platform that secures the Ngulia Rhino Sanctuary in Tsavo West National Park in Kenya.
The technological solution is scalable and replicable to other national parks and protection of natural resources in Kenya and beyond.
The project has received international recognition and is part of a Clinton Global Initiative Commitment to Action.
In the near term, the project aims at assisting the Kenya Wildlife Service in protecting the rhinos at Ngulia from poaching.
When park rangers, commanders and research team is taking full advantage of the technological platform that make their jobs easier, advances their mission and cuts cost for the broader organization, the project can be scaled and replicated. Other parks and countries can take advantage of the system ensuring its sustainability and the protection of a wide range of natural resources.
