Posted Leave a commentPosted in Environmental Drones, Radio-tracking drones

Earlier this month, Allan and colleagues published a paper in Ecosphere discussing the ground-breaking advancements happening in techno-ecology. Techno-ecology is the term used to describe technology that is being used to help study species and environments. In the midst of this century’s current technology boom, the field of ecology has and will continue to be transformed. It is anticipated that techno-ecology will revolutionise how we acquire data, as well as dramatically change the scale of data that can be collected. These new technologies fit into either one of the following categories: Supersize – the advancement of current technologies Step-change – […]

Over the weekend, Debbie took to the skies with her drone and managed to capture some beautiful footage of the Canberra region. The rest of the team were so  impressed by the outcome of her weekend adventures, that our science communication intern, Laura, couldn’t resist but to compile our favourite clips into not one, but TWO videos to share with you all! As a result, we have started a YouTube channel and Instagram account so we can document our future drone flights and other Wildlife Drones news.
