Drones Will Be Used To Find And Protect Koalas

Koala and Joey

The drone project will be a world first.

This world-first initiative is thanks to a Queensland state government boost in funding for koala conservation, which will allow for the use of drones and automated imaging technology.

The high-tech effort by QUT means the experts will be able to get more accurate estimates of the koala population, which will help the team to make effective conservation decisions.
