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.

The PETA Catalog also offers many smaller-ticket items that also make excellent gifts, including the “Go Vegan” Snack Pack and the PETA Slim-Line Vegan Wallet.

All the gifts are available at

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
