UPDATE: Sign-ups for the RhinoHawk bike ride fundraiser are coming in as we prepare for the big day this Sunday, June 29th. With a few days left, we are about 30% of the way to our $2000 goal. Support our cause and have a great time at the Lost Rhino Brewery for a $20 donation. You will receive raffle tickets, swag, and discounts at Lost Rhino. You can register or contribute here at www.nova-labs.org/ride.
Nova Labs has partnered with The Lost Rhino Brewery and The Bike Lane to create The Nova Labs Lost Rhino Bike Ride from Nova Labs in Reston to the Lost Rhino Brewery in Ashburn, VA to support development of our counter poaching UAV!
The distance of the ride is ten miles each way and once at the Lost Rhino Brewery, there will be live music, discounted food and beverages and demonstrations by the Rhino Hawk team!
Check out our Rhino Hawk Intro video.
If you’re looking for more reason to sign up, check out these souvenir pint glasses made on our very own laser last night. Each $50 donation comes with a pair of pint glasses as our thanks for supporting the cause.
Background on Rhino Poaching
There has been significant growth in poaching in just the past few years. 1004 rhino were poached in 2013.
This event will raise money for the Rhino Hawk UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) project. The project team is comprised of volunteers from the local area who are participating in the Wildlife Conservation UAV Challenge. Our team currently has two flight demonstration models and we are well on our way to having a fully integrated flying model.
Your donation of $20, $30 or $50 will get you benefits and discounts and will support the development of our low cost UAV specifically tailored for wildlife conservation. Go to the ride page to donate and register!
We hope you will join us and support our fight against rhino poaching on Sunday, June 29th!
