Where We Work

ENDANGERED SPECIES AND ECOSYSTEMS EXIST AROUND THE WORLD . . . AND SO DO WE

Network Operating Center

HEADQUARTERS

WPS headquarters are located in Denver, Colorado. From this location, we are able to actively monitor our systems, typically deployed in other countries, with the help of our staff and volunteer base. This enables US-based support staff to backup local security personnel and often be the notification point for poaching incursions.

The US -based staff are also engaged in community outreach, attending events such as the Global March for Elephants and Running Wild, a 5K and 1-Mile Fun Run to help prevent the extinction of endangered African wildlife. WPS can also speak in a variety of corporate and educational environments about conservation efforts.

If you are interested in endangered species presentations or demonstrations of UAV or camera technologies, please contact us.

AFRICA

Africa is home to some of the most compelling and yet most critically endangered species of animals, including Lion, Giraffe, Cheetah, Black Rhino, and White Rhino, some of which could be extinct in the wild in only a few decades.

 

OUR PROGRESS:

In South Africa, we’ve expanded and improved our operations resulting in the detection of many new intrusions.  These improvements include the addition of 2 more anti-poaching dogs to our partners.  And further progress includes the assistance of our team in the translocation and protection of Black Rhino.  In Madagascar, we’ve expanded our wpsWatch monitoring system to protect over 600 of the last remaining Ploughshare Tortoise. 

INDONESIA

Indonesia is home to some of the most endangered animals on the entire planet, including incredible species such as the Sun Bear, Sumatran and Bornean Orangutans, Sumatran Tigers, and Sumatran and Javan Rhinos.

OUR PROGRESS:

In Kalimantan, our team deployed wpsWatch effectively dismantling a corrupt security force, capturing illegal loggers, fisherman, and trespassers.  In nearby Ujung Kulon, our team is assisting in tech for the capture of some of the last remaining Javan Rhino for their eventual species rehabilitation.  And in the broader Leuser Ecosystem, our technology is capturing census information to aid in the development of strategic conservation action plans.

HAWAIIAN ARCHIPELAGO

Home to some of the most diverse flora and bird species in world, WPS is committed to protecting the endemic species found only in Hawaii, including the world’s last 6 remaining Newcomb’s Snails.

OUR PROGRESS:

We deployed remote camera systems at one of the wettest and most pristine ecosystems in Hawaii, committing to protect a quarter of all endangered species found in the United States. Our wpsWatch system detected two men poaching a rare and endangered Koa tree, valued at over $100,000.00 resulting in suspect apprehension and prosecution.  Upon review of wpsWatch photographic evidence, local law enforcement was able to identify the two suspects and bring them justice. In 2018, the two will face felony charges for theft, property damage and trespassing.
