The “EYE IN THE SKY” can help catch poachers in Africa and save our wildlife from extinction. Aerial drones to be used to fight and save Africa’s Rhinos, elephants and other endangered species
Rhino Protect Implemented Drones to protect the declining numbers of African Elephants, rhinos and other wildlife from poachers. So far since this technology has been implemented it has been successful and effective. Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), Also known as “drones,” have been raising a lot of hackles in recent years, mainly in relation to public security and military operations.
Today, anyone is able to use these drones, some use it to take impossible pictures and others use it for protection purposes or even for delivering packages. In Africa, drones are used to save elephants, rhinos and other wildlife from extinction. By the use of sophisticated software and data analysis tools, they are able to detect the following:
- Enemy movements
- Wildlife movements within reserves
- Weather conditions
- Predict where poachers might engage in illegal activities.
These technologies have been implemented solely because man are killing wildlife for their body parts, such as tusk, feet, horns etc. Now Rangers and Reserves can be one step ahead of poachers, they will be able to dispatch to the appropriate areas before the wild animal gets killed.
Rangers at reserves are able to operate the drone via two laptops, one showing a map tracking the flight path, the other showing the UAV’s point of view through a high-definition camera.
Together with Technology Wildlife in Africa will be safe!
