Connecting a rhino to the internet could save its life. A mini tracking device fitted in its horn will give rangers this animal's exact location - even raising the alarm if it enters a poaching hotspot. Developed by Sigfox, the open source design has a 3-year battery life and costs just $30 dollars.
Poaching drove the number of rhinos worldwide down to as few as 20,000 ten years ago. The fight to save the animal has seen numbers rise - but they are still a fraction of what they were. Miniature tracking devices connected to the Internet of Things are helping protect some of the world's most endangered animals against poaching.
