The future of Conservation: Our Story

Cisco is preserving endangered species in Africa and creating a world in which animals roam free.

“ We believe that technology has a role in Conservation efforts and want to work directly with Conservationists to build pragmatic solutions to preserve the planet’s endangered ecosystems and species. If the technology doesn’t exist that Conservations need, we want to Co-Innovate to invent it."- David Ward, CTO of Engineering and Chief Architect, Cisco
