Connected Conservation
The rhino is one of Africa's greatest wildlife attractions and part of the iconic big five - lion, elephant, buffalo, leopard, and rhino. If the rhino becomes extinct, it will negatively affect whole ecosystems, tourism, and employment. Every day, up to three rhinos are lost to poaching in South Africa. If this poaching rate continues, the species will be extinct by 2025 (WESSA). We believe organisations from the technology industry have a role to play in society beyond traditional corporate social responsibility programmes, and can have meaningful impact. As part of a pilot project at a private game reserve in southern Africa, we’re partnering with Cisco to harness the transformative power of technology to protect the rhino by tracking the movement of people. With this project, we’re starting a groundswell of real change in conservation.
Most rhino conservation efforts are reactive, such as darting the animal with a tranquiliser. These efforts can be both traumatic and risky for the animal. Our solution is different. We’re focussing on a proactive solution that tracks the movement of people and intercepting rhino poaching syndicates before they harm the animal, allowing the animal to thrive in peace. The solution comprises these areas of transformative technology that also help to accelerate the digital businesses of our clients:
Our solution to conservation is different. We’re using technology to protect the rhino by tracking people.
