Advancing Conservation through Technology

Join us in supporting the conservation of Virunga National Park by investing in state-of-the-art technologies such as drone capabilities. By equipping the Park’s Rangers with these advanced tools, we can enhance their ability to monitor and evaluate key species, combat poaching threats, and prevent deforestation without endangering Park staff.

Tragically, Virunga National Park is the most dangerous park in the world for Rangers, with the loss of ten lives in the line of duty in 2023 alone. By donating to this cause, you’ll play a crucial role in safeguarding endangered wildlife while also providing vital support to the 700+ courageous Rangers who risk their lives daily to protect the Park.

In 2023, a whopping 12,027 flights were conducted, traveling 121,602 kilometres. That’s more than 3 times around the globe!

In many countries, donating cryptocurrency is classed as a non-taxable event, meaning you do not owe capital gains tax on the appreciated amount and can deduct it on your taxes. This can make Bitcoin, Ethereum and other cryptocurrency donations one of the most tax efficient ways to support Virunga National Park. However, you should consult a tax professional for specifics about your country.
