Drones Keep Watchful Eyes on African Wildlife

Home / News / Africa / Drones Keep Watchful Eyes on African Wildlife

Once night falls, wildlife officers set to work. Using their drones, they make sure everything is peaceful
and nothing happens to the animals. Why? Particularly because of poaching.
The African continent is currently experiencing a crisis.

The elephant population fell by 30% from 2007 to 2014 and nearly 1400 rhinoceros were killed
only in 2015 for their horns. Poachers are finding new ways to get what they want, which is why
officers need to take the lead in trying to block their path. Africans Parks is a non-profit organization
whose mission is to protect wildlife and its animals.

This organization has received support from South Africa, but also from Google and the World Wildlife Fund
to test the drones. The project is currently underway in South Africa, Malawi and Zimbabwe. It should also
extend to Botswana. The officers obviously want this technology to help them in their fight against poaching.
