Google funds WWF surveillance drones to track rhino poachers
The world and the wilderness will be a pretty boring place without rhinos, those beastly powerful beings that are the closest we modern humans could get to dinosaurs. Understanding this, Google has recently donated a five million dollar grant to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). Using this, the organization will expand its current army of unmanned aerial vehicles. These radio-controlled devices can also be controlled using the iPad and similar devices. Together, these drones will set out and work as flying surveillance systems, keeping an eye on rhinos and approaching poachers.
The drones, using onboard cameras, enable forest rangers to track down poachers before they harm the rhino population by carrying on with their sickening crimes of killing these beasts for their horns. We applaud Google for the initiative and the WWF for the efforts being put into keeping these fabulous beasts from extinction.
