The World Wildlife Fund is conducting a drone surveillance program in Namibia beginning in April to curb wildlife poaching.
The program will coordinate data collected from the air using drones with data collected on the ground to help park rangers prevent poaching.
The drones will locate endangered animals from the air and relay the information to park rangers. This will allow the rangers to effectively patrol their coverage area and guard the animals from poachers.
WWF has also provided drones to Nepal’s national parks to curb poaching of tigers, elephants and rhinos.
