Bridging the gap between physical and virtual
Protecting our natural heritage for future generations
Creating a world where animals roam free
Connected Conservation is a program that started in a private game reserve adjacent to the Kruger National Park in South Africa. Together with Cisco, we architected a solution that connects multiple types of technology to track the movement of people, identifying those with dubious intent so rangers can step in early to prevent harm to the animals. We reduced rhino poaching by 96% in the first year of operation, and the program has subsequently expanded into Zambia and Kenya.
The age of restoration will be born from the age of information. The human species is creative – if we can begin to reach out and restore, and create a safe haven for wildlife, it will be a great step forward for us all.
Dave Varty, Conservationist
Our vision for eradicating poaching encompasses more than technology.
It’s only through a collective effort that we’ll be able to protect our wildlife. That’s why we continue to uplift and educate communities around the reserves on the importance of conservation. We’ve also integrated our database with that of the police for ongoing security.
Finding a solution to stop poaching and the illegal wildlife trade is a priority for us
Our Intelligent Networking solution creates an area network that secures the park
Connected Conservation is an end-to-end solution that proactively stops people entering the reserve illegally
