Zimbabwe and Malawi have started using South African drones to combat poaching. As part of the Air Shepherd program, Drone Solutions is providing drones to national parks that use live infrared footage to track poachers and help guide ground teams. Elephants and rhinos are hunted for their ivory and horns and can have their tusks hacked off while they are still alive or are simply killed for them. Elephant populations fell at least 30% between 2007 and 2014, whilst around 1,000 rhinos are killed each year to supply demand for rhino horn.
