Wildlife protection drones are solar-powered Y6 copters powered by rechargeable built-in batteries. Before the outbreak, they were used by the Environmental Protection Agency in an attempt to stop people hunting endangered species. After the outbreak, these drones became problematic because people had to resort to hunting in order to survive. This caused the wildlife protection drones to classify the animals as endangered and inhibited people hunting for survival. The survivors began aggressively trying to disable these drones, and succeeded after a few months. These drones were scrapped for components, and are no longer operational.
