See How Drones Are Saving the Last Wild Rhinos and Elephants from Poachers

Over 40,000 elephants and 1,200 rhinos were killed by poachers in 2013 to feed a black market that will pay up to $500,000 for the animals' horns and tusks. Conservationists have been searching for a way to stop poachers before these animals become extinct, and the Air Shepherd Initiative may have found a way.
