We are super excited to be invited to pitch at the Capital Angels Investment Evening tonight. It should be a great event with a number of other exciting businesses joining Wildlife Drones in seeking investment so they can take their business to the next level.
Want to be a part of the world’s most advanced animal radio-tracking drone business? Come along to see us pitching tonight and join our journey, or get in touch if you’d like to find out more! @LHinnovates @Craig_A_Davis
Can drones really be an accurate way to survey animal populations? Researchers at the University of Adelaide recently set out to prove this. In their #EpicDuckChallenge, the team set up a colony of plastic ducks along an Adelaide beach. They then compared the accuracy of counting the ducks from the ground to counting the colony from photographs captured by the drone.
The use of drones proved far superior – with the data being ‘between 43% and 96% more accurate than ground counts.’ This shows us how visual drone imagery can be used to monitor animal populations. The question now stands, can drones be used to pack up all of those ducks?
We’re looking forward to sharing our ideas with Victor Pantano , Ines Atmosukarto and Robert Sok other early career researchers about how to take research ideas to market at the Channel Your Inner Entrepreneur event University of Canberra today.
Great News! Wildlife Drones has been selected as an ACT Finalist in the Australia Post Regional Pitchfest. We’ll be pitching at the big event on Fri 16th June so come along and support some fantastic home-grown business ideas! Safe to say we’ve got some pretty serious competition. #APRegionalPitchfest
