Dr. Thomas Snitch introduces his current work with UAVs (drones) in Africa.  He explains how by bringing appropriate technology to Africa, high resolution satellites, exquisite mathematics and UAVs, we can dramatically reduce, and in many cases stop the poaching of rhinos, elephants and other animals.  He expands on the poaching behaviors in Africa and how it ultimately creates ecological, economic and environmental implications in the region and our world as a whole.  Dr. Snitch concludes by describing how teaching younger generations math and science can lead us into the future.
