Drone-based telemetry of invasive species
Invasive species like wild boar, deer and Burmese python create tremendous damage to ecosystems and cause significant social and economic costs.
Without strategic knowledge about how invasive species use landscapes, effectiveness of control measures is limited. Tracking the movements of invasive species, and understanding how these animals interact with their environment offers the possibility of more targeted and effective interventions.
Populations of destructive invasive species are rapidly expanding globally and pose significant management challenges. Within countries such as the United States and Australia, this includes a diversity of animals such as Burmese pythons, European starlings, feral cats, deer and wild boar, right through to cane toads and asian giant hornets. All of these non-native species cause economic, health and/or environmental harm and their effective management requires co-ordination and complementary, cost-effective activities between Federal and State governments and other natural resource managers.
What Wildlife Drones offers
To better detect and control invasive pests and the spread of disease, Wildlife Drones’ unique combination of hardware and software offers invasive species managers an effective and innovative solution to radio-track up to 40 tagged invasive animals simultaneously. This allows you to monitor and rapidly track animal movements across even the most difficult landscapes where invasive species thrive, such as vast wetlands and rugged mountain ranges.

Effectively track sentinel animals
Our radio-tracking technology is the perfect tool for sentinel (or judas) animals. To assist with invasive species control measures, sentinel animals are radio-tagged and then monitored to enable a better understand their movements, identify the location of larger numbers of animals within their herd in real-time, and enable the deployment of swift and targeted control measures on the ground.
Track multiple animals at the same time
With Wildlife Drones, you can radio-track up to 40 animals simultaneously. This enables you to track many individuals from one target species, or you can just as easily track multiple species at the same time to gain strategic insights on a variety of invasive species movements.
See our Case Studies from both the US and Australia as examples of clients who have successfully tracked feral cats and wild boar with our world-leading technology.
