Crowdfunded Drones Could Save White Rhinos From Extinction

At the Ol Pejeta Conservancy in Kenya, there are 4 Northern White rhinos (VIDEO).

Those 4 rhinos constitute 57% of the total North White rhino population – there are only 7 in the world. And those rhinos are under constant threat due to strong demand for rhino horns – which in parts of the world are thought to (but don’t) have healing powers.

Those 4 rhinos live on the 90,000 acre Conservancy – that’s an area about six times the size of Manhattan. That area is patrolled by 120 rangers. Which means that there aren’t nearly enough people for the Conservancy to keep an eye on its most endangered animals. Not just rhinos, but also several other endangered species as well.
