Google is slowly integrating themselves into every opportunity involving technology, which is an excellent business move in this day and age. The $5 Million donation was a part of Google's Global Giving Awards to help develop a software that uses UAV drones to scan areas in Africa and Asia notorious for poaching.
Poaching has become such an issue in the world that it's estimated that between $7 to $10 billion worth of poached goods are sold on the international market every year. The World Wildlife Fund recognized this problem, and started the program in 2012, with the help of Nepal.
With the help of Google's money, the project has expanded to having unmanned drones scan a region for any sort of large groups of life forms. The drone will then send an alarm to people monitoring the drones cameras, and inspect the situation to see if local authorities need to be contacted!
