Save and Protect Orangutans with Drones

Can Borneo’s deforestation be slowed down by employing drones?
Drones can be used in conservation projects in Borneo. Conservation Drones can be inexpensive, autonomous and operator-friendly. They can be used for surveying and mapping the rain forest and to study the biodiversity. Some conservation drones are operating autonomously and are able to fly pre-programmed missions. Flight time varies and can be up to one hour with a radius of over 20km. Regulations on the permitted flight distance vary from country to country.
