HOOK & FUR: Drones Get A Try In Wildlife Management
Rich Harris, a WDFW wildlife scientist, said the goal of the project is to document the presence of moose calves more safely, more efficiently and less expensively than is possible with traditional wildlife surveying methods. By flying the drone over moose cows, researchers expect to be able to document the presence of nearby calves.
Harris said the only other ways to conduct such research – on foot or from a helicopter – are less safe, require more time, and are more expensive than using a drone. Also, the drone will be flown only during daylight hours at a maximum height of 400 feet and will not be flown over people or buildings. The flight schedule was chosen to avoid weekends and most major hunting seasons, which will minimize disturbance to people.
