Early indications are incredibly promising: a pilot project in a protected wildlife area managed to reduced poaching there by 96 percent.

A pilot program could cause poachers to move to undroned areas. I expect the reduction to be less when they watch everywhere.

Paul Udoto, spokesman for the Kenya Wildlife Service (KWS), said: "Use of drones has shown that we can prevent poaching and arrest many poachers on their tracks.
