If this post offends anyone or is deemed not related to this group, please remove. However, I believe that this issue transcends political lines and is something we can all get behind. Some of you already have made a contribution and we thank you very much!

Illegal poaching, logging and fishing not only targets endangered wildlife and protected habitats, but funds terror organizations such as al-Shabaab, Boko Haram and the Lord's Resistance Army as well. It happens in Africa, Asia, Europe, the Caribbean and even here in the States. Rangers are often out-manned, out-gunned and in many cases lack the resources needed to keep themselves safe. Over the past year 102 Rangers have been killed by poachers. Despite this, these dedicated men and women wake up every day and continue the fight.

Today, a couple of thousand Rangers patrol several million of acres each day. In the case of our partner, the Maasai Wilderness Trust, 118 Rangers patrol over 300,000 acres covering enough ground over the year to walk from NYC to LAX...7 times! Our technologically advanced aircraft can cover thousands of acres per day and more importantly at night; and is more cost effective than drones or traditional manned aircraft used today. It's a game-changer.

Please consider helping reach our goals for 2017 and start-off 2018 on the right foot. Your tax-deductible contribution will help turn the tables on poaching, illegal logging and fishing wherever we are asked to set-up our operations. Nothing can happen without your help. Contribute, Like and Share among your network of family and friends. Again, thanks for giving us an opportunity to share our passion. We're just trying to make a difference and have a Happy New Year!
