Steve Gulick is an electronic engineer and conservationist who initially began to use his engineering skills in studies of interesting but technically challenging animal behaviors such as infrasonic communication in elephants. During these field studies, he witnessed the carnage being caused by the dramatic increase in poaching and the futile efforts of existing forces to protect vast areas with meager manpower. The poachers were winning the battle and would win the war. He found it compelling that many technologies already developed for the military could
be adapted for the conservation battlefield to change the balance of power in favor of law enforcement. He has since been involved in implementing some if these measures in such diverse locations as Kenya, Democratic Rep. of Congo, Rep. of Congo, Central African Republic, Gabon, Russia’s Altai Republic, Guatemala, and Nepal.
