Foreword by Thomas E. Lovejoy, Ph.D., Professor of Environmental Science and Policy at George Mason University, and National Geographic Conservation Fellow
“Drones for conservation is essentially just in its infancy, but while we can lament the possible consequent avoidance of a good slog of a field study, we can already see multiple benefits falling from the skies as it were…/…So Drones for Conservation is very much a first. With actual examples from around the world, it also has very practical sections on how to use drones effectively – as usual there is never a substitute for carefully thinking out a project in advance.” Thomas E. Lovejoy, Ph.D. , National Geographic Conservation Fellow.
