judgecorp (778838) writes "Another wild rhino is killed every 11 hours and there are only 539 left. The Zoological Society of London and The Kenya Wildlife Service are using motion sensitive cameras to observe animals in remote areas, hoping to gather evidence against poachers and preserve wildlife. The battery powered units, built by Cambridge Consultants, have a Raspberry Pi controller, an LED flash for night images, and an Iridium satellite link. The camera images are visible on the Instant Wild website, so the public can lend a hand in wildlife monitoring."
