Drone radio-telemetry – how it works

Features and Benefits

radio-tracking dots on target icon in purple

Track up to 40 animals simultaneously

Manually radio-tracking wildlife one at a time on foot is incredibly inefficient, especially in challenging terrain. With Wildlife Drones, you now have the ability to track up to 40 radio-tagged animals simultaneously. Importantly, this also reduces your risk of losing animals.
