World Should Follow NY to Clamp Down on Ivory

April 17, 2014: An independent statewide survey shows that over 80 per cent of New York voters are in favour of a permanent state ban on the sale of ivory that is decimating elephants in Africa and Asia.

But in the past 50 years their numbers have plummeted so fast that some predict the magnificent creatures could disappear from the wild in little more than a decade.

e - Rescuer with wireless screen

WCT has helped design the 'e-Rescuer' - a thermal imaging equipment that will be used to detect wild animals involved in conflict situations during night, day or foggy conditions

The e-rescuer is likely to enhance the animal-detection
   ability of the rescue team
   manifolds, especially during night and under foggy

It will reduce the risk to the lives of the rescue team
   members during a rescue operation.

The e-rescuer will greatly assist in tracking wild animals,
   planning tranquilization and mitigating man-animal
   conflict situations.

Solar Energy and Potable Water

WCT has invested in
    designing special
    Solar Integrated
    Systems for Anti-
    poaching Camps

Over 2000 units have    been installed in APCs of 65 PAs across India.
The Unit can charge important equipment such as
   communication radio sets, cameras, mobile phones and
   provide for lighting in Anti-poaching camps
