Trialling aerial radiography to detect black-footed rock wallabies (Petrogale lateralis subsp) in the Western Kimberley

Project: Research

Project Details

Description

Qualified drone pilots from Charles Darwin University will travel to the West Kimberley and use remotely piloted fixed wing aircraft fitted with a dual RGB and thermal radiometric camera to assess the ability to detect black-eared Rock Wallabies inhabiting the top outer margins of rocky outcrops. This will be a trial study to assess the feasibility and cost effectiveness of the methodology
