The latest group of technologies wraps up together and known as Rapid (Real-Time Anti-Poaching Intelligence Device) by its makers is on the way that will definitely help to reduce poaching and hunting of rhinos, mainly in South Africa. British scientist Paul O’Donoghue invented the system—he and fellow scientist Christian Rutz, both are from the St. Andrews University. They have published an article in the Journal of Applied Ecology, recitation the existing state of poaching in Africa and they reveal that how the new device can put a stop to this evil act. It is a new technology to prevent rhino poaching.

New technology to prevent rhino poaching

The system includes a camera that may be set in the horns of rhinos and the other is a heart-monitoring device that is attached to an alarm system and GPS tracking unit. The heart monitor would turn off, according to the authors report, if the rhino was loomed by poachers—that would set off an alarm message that would be sent directly to the armed conservationists team who would jump into a helicopter and run to the spot. If they were too late to stop the killing, they would at least be able to catch the poachers who were involving in the act, and hopefully reclaim proof of the crime from the camera. Because of the quick retort time, it would create poaching an enormously dangerous plan. They note that wide-ranging testing has been done with the placement of the camera in the horn, which necessitates drilling—they persist that the rhinos feel no pain during the procedure.

Rhinos are critically endangered species according to the Red Data Book—there is only about 25,000 of them left in the wild, the majority of which live in South Africa. Officials have reported that approximately 1000 of the animals killed every year, mostly for their horn, which some Asian cultures value very highly. It is supposed that if the poaching is not stopped, rhinos will finish existing as soon as 2035 in the wild. To conserve and protect the rhinos with the new device, rangers would have to grab each one, by installing the system and release the animals back into the wild.

O’Donoghue and Rutz believe their system can be adapted for use with other animals, such as tigers and elephants, theses two animals are also poaching so heavily that they too may become extinct if something is not done to quash the practice. Humane Society International is also helping by giving the fund to the project.
