Norfolk, Va. – It can be hard to find the perfect gift for someone who has everything, but this year, PETA has a unique solution: a camera-equipped hobby drone aircraft, available through the PETA Catalog. While the word “drones” usually conjures up thoughts of killing machines, PETA’s remote-controlled aircraft are used to save lives, and I thought you might be interested in sharing this idea with your readers. Here’s how it works:
Users receive a live video feed on their smart phones of everything the camera records—including footage of animals who are in danger or who are being abused, whether that means a deer who was shot by a hunter and left to die, a dog who has been chained outdoors in freezing temperatures, or wildlife caught in someone’s illegal trap. Drone users can then take their footage to the authorities—potentially saving animals’ lives in the process.
A perfect gift for the tech enthusiast, PETA’s Parrot AR Drone 2.0 is available from PETA for $324.99.
All the gifts are available at PETA.org/Catalog.
