VolAero Drones fights Everglades' python invasion with thermal cameras

VolAero Drones is working with famed outdoorsman Bill Booth to demonstrate that drones equipped with the latest thermal imaging equipment can effectively spot and track pythons at night — the prime hunting time, the company said.

Over 100,000 Burmese pythons infesting the Florida Everglades have decimated 90 percent of small wildlife while surviving all attempts at eradication.

The demonstration video, (https://youtu.be/5gviPwEvk-o) recorded at night in the Florida Everglades on Nov. 11, clearly shows the thermal outline of a massive Burmese python being captured by Bill Booth.

VolAero will be sharing this demonstration with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, Everglades National Park, South Florida Water Management District and other organizations engaged in python eradication campaign.

Zwebner invites inquiries from interested parties wishing to collaborate on drone technology solutions to environmental challenges. VolAero has also started a crowdfunding campaign. To view VolAero case studies and learn how to support the company´s work, visit startengine.com/volaero.
