The cast of Arrow and The Flash have stepped up to support their fellow actor Paul Blackthorne’s passion of eliminating elephant poaching. Blackthorne plays Detective Quentin Lance on Arrow. He recently made a shirt with 100% of proceeds going to Air Shepherd Initiative of the Lindbergh Foundation.

The organization uses sophisticated technology including data algorithms and night vision drones to predict elephant poachers and alert rangers to catch them in the act.
