About Valerie

Evolution, Sustainability and Wildlife Expert launched a nonprofit with a fun name, Save A Horny Friend, to promote the use of drones and ground surveillance in curbing the poaching crisis, namely of rhinos and elephants. I've covered: the wildlife / poaching research in Africa, a decent amount of drone research in the Bay Area and San Diego, the attitudes and problems of wildlife trade in the US, and established the brand, but am looking for others to help take the brand on a national level to raise serious money under both the names Save The Wild.Tech, but mostly the name Save A Horny Friend. Skills needed in co-founder or teammates can range from fundraising expert to social media aficionado.
