We do incur significant costa in running our UAV surveillance program. Keep in mind our Schiebel S-100 UAV can fly to 18,000 ft, we can have live video travelling hundreds of kilometres back to our ship, and we can operate in both daytime and night time. In terms of stopping illegal activities on the water and in the jungle, this is a formidable asset, and from the Costa Rican Rangers perspective, it is the most sought after service we offer. Schiebel has generously sponsored much of the program, however we do still incur considerable costs. These include flight permits, transport of spare parts, fuel, and even ship modifications to accomodate such a beast. This UAV is such an amazing tool in saving wildlife, and we’d be super grateful if you could make a donation to keep this beast in the air!
