    You too can become a virtual ranger through Samsung’s Wildlife Watch Program

    Samsung is expanding its Wildlife Watch Program in collaboration with Africam and The Black Mamba Anti-Poaching Unit. Samsung introduced the program in 2021 to allow anyone to watch wildlife in the Balule Nature Reserve in South Africa live and help keep rhinos safe from poaching. Now, Samsung is expanding the program with a three-pronged strategy.

    Firstly, the company will use the Galaxy S21 Ultra and the Galaxy S23 Ultra to boradcast 24/7 live streams of wild animals and allow anyone anywhere to become virtual rangers and keep watch of endangered wildlife.

    The program leverages the Galaxy S23 Ultra's IP68 dust and water resistance, the 200MP sensor, Nightography capabilities, and 10x optical zoom to broadcast live streams and improve the quality of the evidence rangers gather and send back to Black Mamba HQ.

    Anyone with an internet connection can watch these live streams on the official Wildlife-Watch website and help the program.

    Galaxy SmartTag and Freestyle projector also play a role in this expansion

    Secondly, in addition to using the Galaxy S21 Ultra and S23 Ultra for live streams and evidence gathering, Samsung wants to improve the safety of the rangers through the Galaxy SmartTag.

    Samsung will be testing the SmartTag's benefits in the context of wildlife preservation by equipping rangers with the location tracker. Combined with SmartThings Find, the SmartTag should help rangers them coordinate conservation efforts, and Black Mamba HQ will be able to monitor where rangers are in the reserve.

    Thirdly, Samsung says it has worked with The Black Mambas to create an educational program for young people in local communities. The Samsung Bush Babies Animal Insight will help young people understand the importance of wildlife diversity and conservation for future generations.

    The educational material will be showcased through The Freestyle projector, as the portable device lets The Black Mambas teach the Bush Babies Animals Insight Initiative from anywhere.
