Zebras with high-tech sensors detect rhino poachers

Scientists at Wageningen University Research have developed a high-tech early warning system for poaching. By equipping prey animals such as zebras, wildebeests and antelopes with sensors, suspicious changes in their movements are detected. Algorithms then recognise whether this behaviour may have been caused by poachers. This technology could represent a breakthrough in the fight against poaching.
