Rhinos in Kenya could soon be protected by remote controlled helicopters.

A team of US engineers have developed small helicopter drones. They have traveled to Kenya to test their drones in East Africa’s largest black rhino sanctuary, Ol Pejeta.

Their remote controlled drones can fly anywhere in the park, and then send back live video back to base.

The drones are fitted with special  heat detecting cameras which makes animals and poachers easy to spot.

It is hoped that  park rangers can keep a close eye on their animals, and deter poachers from hunting in the park.
