Wildlife conservancy purchases drone to fight poaching

22 April 2014, 15:05 Victor Tinto

Nairobi - The Ol Pejeta conservancy, one of the world's remaining home for white Rhinos is set to purchase a drone to help fight poaching.

The Nanyuki based conservancy through marketing manager Elodie Sampere said the “aerial ranger” as the drone has been christened will be ready by June.

“We were able to conduct successful tests in December 2013 and the drone then returned to the USA for final work. We have been told by Airware, our partners, that an operational deployment will be in place from June 2014,” read the statement.

The conservancy said the drone will be key in containing poaching, especially of the endangered black and northern white rhinos. Ol Pejeta is home to four of the six northern white rhinos left in the world.

The fight against poaching has risen a notch higher with official government estimates stating that the numbers of wild animals killed through poaching has increased.

Through the environment and natural resource ministry, the government has set up a task force to ensure that there is a reduction in poaching.

The Kenya Wildlife Service has also been mandated to recruit more wardens and find better equipment to fight the vice.
