I wish military technology was focused on endangered wildlife applications.

However, this is just PR spin for drones. The more ways that the US government can characterize a drone as a weapon for good, the easier it will be to get the public behind mass production and implementation.

One step at a time, folks. Now turn on your television where you can see life happening.

Most poachers in that part of the world I assume would use vehicles during their exploits... Eyes in the sky would definitely help locate poachers...

I'm just glad to see UAVs are getting used for something useful for a change...

Lots of gullible people here...

You seriously thing the WWF is using these to "save the animals"?

Here is former International President of the WWF, Prince Philip:

Here he is in 1961 in India, enjoying himself shooting tigers:

When the elite try to manipulate your emotions using children or animals, use your head, not your heart...

It's more than just that.

The WWF is working with the UN to seize territory all over the globe. This just makes it easier to watch over their territory.

If you enter their territory, you will be shot and branded a "poacher".

The United Nations is a conglomeration of countries. How do you think they can be trying to seize territory when they already own it all.

We loose maybe ten thousand species a year. Most of them unknown to science and often in the name of development. We tend to want to look after species like the Rhino and the Elephant but a little rodent at the back end of beyond has little or no value. I kinda think that we in the Western world are no different to the poachers killing a Rhino. We vote with our wallet. For example eating Palm oil is killing orang-outang habitat.
