We’re super excited that we recently managed to find 60 swift parrots on Bush Heritage Australia’s Tarcutta Hills Reserve which is the largest flock ever recorded on the reserve. We also managed to radio-tag and track these fascinating birds despite their habit of feeding on nectar in the tops of very tall trees, as reported on ABC news today. Over the past month our cutting edge technology has enabled us to track the movements of multiple birds at the same time within the grand old growth white box and mugga ironbark woodland. Importantly our tracking has resulted in new foraging and roosting […]
Drones are dramatically changing how we identify and resolve conservation issues in even the most remote areas. A great example of the value of drones for assisting conservation efforts is highlighted by a study of proboscis monkeys in the forests of Sabah, a Malaysian state on the island of Borneo, as published by Stark and colleagues in Remote Sensing in Ecology and Conservation. The study focused on monitoring human activity in these forests and how they impacted the movements of these cryptic monkeys. Proboscis monkeys typically occupy the riparian zone, which is the land that occurs alongside rivers and streams. […]

Given the strong international interest in Wildlife Drones we are currently expanding our team to meet the demand. If you have UAV Mechatronics Engineering experience and are interested in an internship with our dynamic team working on environmental projects click here to find out more and submit an application. Our new team member will be involved in the development of Robotic Operating System (ROS) code for target localisation and flight planning, as well as testing and maintenance of our next generation Wildlife Drone UAVs.
We are pleased to announce that we are now taking Expressions of Interest for undertaking animal radio-tracking projects with Wildlife Drones in 2018 – book in early to avoid disappointment. So whether you are tracking pest species, endangered species or stock, we’d love to hear from you. Simply click here to take advantage of this unique opportunity. Photo: ©shutterstock_MSchaefer
