Giana I have never seen this article "Take Part" before. Wow, what a great article, albeit so sad about all of the creatures. Ya bet I want to turn those POS poachers into prey. What in the #!#! is that Poaching is higher than ever in the last 12 months. Creatures are Doomed once then are born, but Humans always think they are owed a FREE RIDE. For Cotton Pick =en Sake what the #@#@ is that ???? SCREWBALLS....Sink them all into the ABYSS PERIOD. FET UP WITH THIS! Yes there is a song out there "FREE RIDE" (No More Free Ride for this POS Humans as long as I am alive PERIOD! Got me while I just saw something on TV. Sorry Wound SKY HIGH!

I am very encouraged by the use of tech and drones to protect wildlife.

This is excellent! Say, am I the only one to get constant popups asking for a Facebook link every time I comment on CARE2? It is so annoying I've started reading news elsehwere.

John G, when you add a comment, you should see a box at the bottom left of the "add comment" box that says "share on facebook?" and is checked. Uncheck it before you click submit. It should stay unchecked until you clear cache or run CCleaner or the like. Then just uncheck it once the next time you log in.

I hope those drones are armed with machine guns to take out the poachers.

What are we to do? The world grows smaller and the animals are a great risk.

Marvellous, it always helps when technology can be put to hopefully effective use against poachers. These people need to be arrested and face severe penalties.

I sure hope this comes to pass. As far as I'm concerned there are no limits when it comes to protecting innocent animals from poachers.

Wonderful news. But it would be so much better if the drones were equiped to kill the poachers on the spot. Intead of waiting till they get apprehended. Get a slap on the wrist and go back to murdering.
