Wildlife conservation & networking technologies

Hi community,

I am very interested in the use of 'networking technologies' for wildlife conservation (my background being in both sector).

Recently, while job/PhD hunting, I saw an article on the the protection of the Rhinos from poaching ( see link attached), using networking technologies.

Does anyone know who is leading this project or if there is any other places currently applying the same sort of wireless sensor network technogies ?

I am very keen to get into this area of conservation/reseach, as I believe in the long term it will be very effective and  be a difference (not only to the endangered species but also to the human communities in those areas). 

Any advice on how to be involved in this field will be welcomed.
