World first drone wildlife tracking startup making global impact
Canberra startup, Wildlife Drones has developed the world’s most innovative animal radio-tracking system using drones that track radio-tagged animals in a world first.
Dr Debbie Saunders, a wildlife researcher at the Australian National University (ANU) and Co-Founder and Director of Wildlife Drones originally had the idea for a radio-tracking drone 10 years ago, but it took several years of major funding applications before they could even try to develop such a system.
