It's like rhino cam, a small camera fitted inside a small hole drilled in the rhino horn that films it's surroundings. Can this be the new hope for saving the inevitable extinction of this ancient species from relentless poaching? It could be. The camera will identify anyone in close proximity of the rhino and identify them making it easier to track them down. Apparently the camera also has a sensor that detects a change of rhythm in the animals vital signs with a back to base monitor that alerts game keepers wnen an animal is in distress. The idea works for a rhino because they have a central horn curving up. It's an amazing and innovative idea that sadly wouldn't work for elephants but hopefully if this works for the rhino maybe a variation of this may be found.
