Ground breaking technology will be implemented to save native Australian animals. A specialised thermal imaging drone has been brought in from the United States. It is a part of a mission by arial cinematographer Douglas Thron. His work has helped save distressed animals in California and the Bahamas.
While speaking to Nine News, Douglas Thron said, “Yeah the goal right now is to primarily find where the population of animals still are, whether the habitat is intact or not.”
If an animal on the footage is seen as bright yellow, it indicates their body temperature, showing signs of life in a torched forest.
The bushfires in Australia have had a destructive effect on wildlife. They have wiped out almost half of the country’s koala population.
This new technology can help organisations like World Wildlife Fund (WWF) to find these animals at the earliest. Currently, the technology that is currently being used in Kangaroo Valley, south of Sydney will soon be implemented in northern New South Wales too
