Drones will soon monitor elephants and other wild animals in Africa.

Scientists recently completed one of the first unmanned aerial surveys of wildlife in Africa, which could one day lead to endangered animal protection and poacher prevention.

The survey was completed in Burkina Faso’s Nazinga Game Ranch.
Among other things, drones also offer a security and logistics advantage over plane monitoring. In Burkina Faso, for example, fuel used for airplanes is often siphoned out of the plane, and finding someone to fly one can be problematic.
