Drones are becoming a vital part of saving countless lives in Australia. The recent brushfires have devastated the Victorian Forest. Many animals, such as koalas, have been caught in the chaos with nowhere else to go. Drones have joined the rescue teams of police and wildlife officers by gathering information in the hard to reach areas.
Drones take thermal images of trapped koala bears that allow police to determine if the koala needs a health assessment.
Using drone technology allows the wildlife rescue teams to cover more impacted areas quickly to save more lives!
