Thermal imaging and Poaching

New research by Professors Anne Goodenough and Adam Hart on the use of thermal imaging to protect large mammals and wildlife rangers in Africa is having a dramatic impact.

The potential of thermal imaging cameras to improve the effectiveness of anti-poaching strategies in a South Africa game reserve grew out of a project looking at the use of the cameras to identify game species.

It has also made the role of the wildlife ranger safer as they can identify poachers from a safer distance.
