  • according to the World Wildlife Fund, the conservation group.

  • South Africa is one of the four main countries in Africa where you can still find rhinoceroses.

  • All but one species of these animals are endangered.

  • Thousands of them have been poached illegally hunted because their horns are used in traditional Asian medicine.

  • Even the sanctuaries that are designed to protect and preserve rhinos are under threat.

  • But they have a new weapon in the fight against poaching.

  • And believe it or not, it's a type of meerkat.

  • I first saw you, I know when I was probably 67 years old in the Kruger National Park.

  • And then I knew I wanted to protect your honors, to be leading the project that protects so many writers.

  • And he's so successful in doing that.

  • No, it's an absolute privilege.

  • I can't ask for more.

  • Mhm mm mhm.

  • We are building a smart park based on technology that enables our range is to be able to secure the area without many of us who might be tourists even realizing what is happening.

  • Yes, mhm.

  • The postcode mere cut was a world first.

  • If it is a specific time, there are people in the park who have not used the gate.

  • Our system will be able to pick those up.

  • It's difficult to find a person out there in two million Hectors.

  • It's like finding a needle in a stack of needles and then getting to him and catching him.

  • And people think, Well, that's easy.

  • It's not easy what the market has effectively done, since its its first deployment into these parts of Kruger has has decreased poaching by up to 95% every day that market is working.

  • We are saving runners.

  • Technology makes things possible, but people makes things happen.

  • It can't replace people, but it can make it much easier for the people to do their job.

  • It's also exciting to start using technology in a useful way, because often we feel that we do technology for the sake of technology.

  • But now we're actually doing technology for the sake of saving a species you need to be able to sense.

  • Then you need to make sense of what you're sensing, and the third thing is you need to be able to respond to that.

  • These systems all need to talk to each other.

  • The boundary detection system alerts the market.

  • The market alerts the ranges and alerts the helicopter.

  • The reaction crew.

  • It's the aircraft airborne to transfer the acquisition of the poachers over to the aircraft.

  • Mhm.

  • People come from all over the world to come and see the wildlife in Africa.

  • If we're not able to conserve that, that means those people will not come here.

  • Keystone species such as the rhino will be there for my young ones to appreciate as well maybe even the next generations that follows them.

  • We enter a new era of conservation where various forms of technology enable us to secure bigger areas and orientate better to what we need to do, yeah.
