In order to stay one step ahead of the poachers, Sibuya Rhino Foundation are constantly needing to update their equipment and invest in new technology. Their current project is to purchase a thermal drone. This amazing piece of equipment would enable them to view large areas of the property that wouldn’t normally be accessible by the APU team. It would also pick up any people that may be hiding in the bush using thermal imaging. It has automatic sensors that trigger a message to central APU if a person is spotted by its cameras.
This equipment is vital in protecting our amazing rhino from the constant threat of poaching.
