Elephant poaching is becoming a huge threat to the elephant population, especially in areas like Tanzania. The problem is that many national parks only have a certain amount of rangers, and they are unable to identify and confront every poacher that comes onto the territory. There is a conservation organization called Resolve that has recently developed cameras with an AI system that can help detect poachers before rangers do, allowing them to deal with the problem much more swiftly.
"TrailGuard AI builds on past work by Resolve to create remote cameras to aid conservation. However, early devices were bulky, had limited battery life, and were unsophisticated, sending images to rangers every time their motion sensors were tripped."
