Conservation Drones are low-cost unmanned aerial vehicles that could be used for: surveying wildlife, monitoring and mapping terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and supporting the enforcement of protected areas.

What would we use your donation for?

  • to build conservation drones for our partners in developing countries that can benefit from this technology
  • to travel to the field sites of our partners to conduct training workshops on the use of drones
  • to continue improving conservation drones by making them more rugged and portable, carry heavier sensors, and fly longer and farther
