Nepal deploys drones to fight rhino poachers

The horn of a rhinoceros costs as much as US$40,000 per kilo in the international black market.

    Rhino poaching is big business in Nepal, with hundreds killed every year for their valuable horns.
     
    The international demand for these animals is what is keeping the trade and the poachers going. 

    To fight the problem, the country's national parks have started using drone technology to stop the illegal trade.
