Drones for Conservation

From wildlife tracking and landscape-level monitoring to population counts and behaviour observation, drone technology is changing how conservationists do their work, presenting novel research methods and new perspectives. Our panel will discuss what drones have allowed them to do that was previously not possible, and talk about how drone technology might further support their fields of study in the future.

The adjoining Dish Cafe will be open before and after this event for coffee and drinks. Nibbles provided after the talk to encourage the conversation to continue.
