WORLD YOUTH RHINO SUMMIT
Kashmir World Foundation Delegates, Julia Chirite & Arthur Tisseront represented the United States of America at the World Youth Rhino Summit 2014 to speak out against wildlife poaching and trafficking through the use of Kashmir Robotics fully autonomous Counter Poaching Drones.
The World Youth Rhino Summit was a focused gathering of 100 young conservation leaders aged 15-17 years from South Africa, other African countries affected by rhino poaching, consumer countries in Asia, and other representative countries. Delegates, educators, and conservation leaders, were brought together at the symbolic iMfolozi Game Reserve to directly address the current rhino poaching crisis and develop resolutions needed to stop burgeoning wildlife crime.
The World Youth Rhino Summit’s goal is to engage future leaders in rhino/wildlife conservation & protection strategies and empower delegates to become local, national and international Ambassadors for wildlife & conservation to influence policy at local, state, national and international levels.
KwF Delegates Julia & Arthur are Youth Conservation Ambassadors in the United States. They will help develop social networks amongst peers, educate and drive awareness of the negative socio-economic impacts of poaching and wildlife crime.
Each delegate will be tasked to undertake specific actions in the 12 months following the Summit, including:
• Presentations to schools and youth bodies
• Enlisting media support (radio and newspaper interviews)
• Penning blogs and participating in online forums.
You can support this project by Inviting Julia & Arthur to speak at your school, university, business to discuss the importance of a balanced environment where humans and animals can live in harmony. Email:
