But a major challenge in implementing this technology in difficult terrain is the lack of well-functioning electricity networks and power sources. Every new solution must therefore be energy efficient. With advanced sensor technology, we continuously research how the system can be expanded with intelligent cameras, radar systems, cameras, thermal cameras, drones, microphones and shot detectors. With our aids, the park rangers will become the savannah’s super eyes and super ears.
Here are some examples of the innovations currently in use.
Education that protects animals
Poaching and lack of education are linked. Therefore, we must improve living conditions and create opportunities for local people in the surrounding areas around the parks. One way out of poverty is quality education that has long-term effects. Partly for the individual, but also for the whole society.
Income-generating activities are also required. We will create courses in entrepreneurship that are offered to the local communities. Participants will learn practical business skills that provide income to individuals and support families.
Our long-term goal is to create a digital high school and education online. These are educations that all Kenyans can complete, but the surrounding communities are a priority. Therefore, it is extra important that we receive support and invest in infrastructure such as mobile devices (eg tablets) and the internet.
