KwaZulu-Natal - The fight against rhino poaching is heading into the future.

A Johannesburg based company is taking surveillance technology to new heights, and it’s all locally made.

Drones are being used to keep watch from the skies, allowing for faster incident response.

The pilot project has already yielded positive results at the Hluhluwe iMfolozi Game Park in KwaZulu-Natal, who haven't had a poaching since February.

eNCA.com went to witness the project in action.
