Rhino Tempest Drones that secure wildlife from poaching and allow virtual viewing by wardens, researchers and tourists.

Please help us create a RHINO TEMPEST!
A new unmanned aerial vehicle designed to protect endangered rhino. Read on below to learn about Ol Pejeta's drone programme and our efforts to protect some of the last rhino in the world.

The conservancy contains 4 of the last 7 Northern White rhino in existence, a number of other endangered species, and the 'Big Five' (lion, leopard, buffalo, elephant and rhino). Just imagine being one of the last seven humans alive (and no it is not as fun as your mind might be suggesting).

There is currently a poaching epidemic with countless rhino being slaughtered for their horns, which are believed to be a cure-all for illnesses. In a country with an average wage of just $1 a day, a rhino horn can bring in $12,000 (that's 1 night's work for over 30 years income.
