Drones help protect rhinos in South Africa

Small unmanned aircraft track poachers of endangered animal after hundreds were killed for horns this year alone.

    The rhinoceros is one of the world's most endangered animals. More than 400 have been killed for their horns already this year alone in South Africa.

    In a bid to tackle the problem, drones are being used to track poachers of the rhinos in the country.
