A Guide to Using Drones to Study Wildlife: First, Do No Harm
Technological developments have provided much welfare for environmental research. Sensors on southern elephant seals have been used to map the Southern Ocean, whereas tracking devices have given us a new view of mass animal migrations, from birds to zebras.
Reduction of electronics and improvements in reliability and affordability mean that consumer drones (also known as unmanned aerial vehicles, or UAVs) are now refining scientific research in a number of areas. And they are becoming more popular for wildlife management, as well as research.
Wildlife drones can be used in many different ways, from small multi-rotor units that can scare invasive birds away from crops, to fixed-wing aircraft that fly above rainforests to spot orangutan nests. UAVs have also been shown to provide more precise data than traditional ground-based techniques when it comes to monitoring seabird colonies.
Other industries, from mining to window-cleaning, are looking at using drone technology. Some forecasts predict that the global market for commercial applications of UAVs will be valued at more than US$127 billion. Given their usefulness in the biologist’s toolkit, the uptake of UAVs for environmental monitoring is likely to continue.
Young Students aiming to preserve Wildlife
Born Free, in association with the British International Education Association (BIEA), has announced the shortlist for the 2019 BIEA International STEM Youth Innovation Competition.
Since its launch in January 2019, the competition has received huge interest from schools and teachers from around the world – reaching 30,000 schools globally and drawing applications from 34 countries and regions.
After an intensive and rigorous marking process, 45 teams are through to the next round based on their qualification scores, representing 18 countries and regions including UK, China, USA, Australia, Canada, UAE，India, Kenya and many others.
Each year a theme connecting world issues and technology is chosen for the competition, and this year’s theme is ‘Fighting Extinction via Drone Technology’. Teams are asked to come up with a drone design to aid in the conservation of endangered species, and projects submitted in the first round focused on an enormous variety of endangered animals, including snow leopards, black rhinos, pangolins, turtles, elephants and many more.
The teams through the next round now have to modify/build a drone to reflect their report design ideas as laid down in the first round within a fixed budget. They are required to submit two videos to the judges – one to demonstrate their drone in action and able to complete a set of tasks, a second video to visually present an outline of their project to date.
Upon successful submission of the videos, teams are invited to come to the international final at the London Royal Air Force Museum on 4th July, with a public showcase of their projects and presenting to a panel of expert judges. A grand prize of £5,000 is waiting for the top team, a variety of other prizes across the age categories will be awarded to participating teams.
Laura Gosset, Head of Education, Born Free, concluded:
“Wildlife is coming under increasing threat from human actions so Born Free is thrilled to be partnering with BIEA on this competition. The submissions we have received so far have been outstanding and we are very excited to see the progress made by the finalists in the next round.
“This competition is about ensuring that the next generation understands the real-world application of STEM skills. Ultimately for us as a charity, how we can effectively use technology to protect and monitor wildlife populations could be the difference between extinction and survival for some of the world’s most threatened species.”
Another pride for the UAE Schools is that one of them have gone through the next round. The school from UAE who has gone through to the next round is GEMS International School, Al Khail. They entered in the age 15-17 category; their chosen animal for protection is Arabian Leopards and Below is the report prepared by them on their topic.
‘The Arabian leopard is a highly endangered species located in the Arabian peninsula. Currently, their population is decreasing and there are less than 300 Arabian leopards left in the world today. But if we are to find them, then they are commonly found in Palestine, south of Oman, by the sea, and are possibly located all around the perimeter of the red sea. The Arabian leopard tends to live in areas that have High mountains and deep wadis (valleys) with sufficient prey, permanent water, adequate cover, and freedom from persecution. According to “Yemeni-leopard” report, the leopards are proven to currently exist only in the Dhofar region in Oman, Hajjah and Al Mahrah governorates in Yemen, and the Judean Desert and Negev highlands of Palestine. According to the same source, the last recorded evidence of leopards in other countries in the peninsula has dated back to the early to the mid-20th century.’

Unless you live in a cave in a faraway area in the boondocks, you have most likely seen on television, or witnessed live, events that happen in real time, e.g., awards nights, concerts, stage plays, product launchings, convention presentations, and other such activities that are classified as live events. As part of the audience, you probably are impressed with the experience but do not really give much thought about what it took to stage such events.
Truth be told, a lot of time and resources is spent on live event production. It begins with the concept and culminates with the actual staging of the event (which is what the audience actually sees) which, while significant tasks by themselves, are just parts of the overall production. There are a gazillion details that need to be considered, any one of which could spell the difference between a successful event and, at best, a “mediocre” or, at worst, a disaster, if not paid attention to. Major details of live event production include venue selection and booking, stage design and construction, lights and audiovisual equipment design and set up, event program design, catering, etc. Other details include design, printing, and distribution of tickets or invitations, promotional activities, rehearsals, making sure there are separate dressing rooms for the VIP participants, post-event party, and the like. All these details and more should be completed before the actual event, i.e., there can be no delays because once the event date comes, its ShowTime, ready or not.
To successfully stage a live event production, therefore, it is necessary to have a production team to manage it. If you have experience in this type of work, then you can probably hire or assign people to the various tasks required, with you as the project manager. If not, the event is a major undertaking, it would be best for you to consider contracting the services (i.e., outsourcing) of a professional event management group to take care of all or part of the production details for you. This option has several advantages, including:
Guaranteed professional touch. You can still be the overall project manager with the events management group as one of the key members. This ensures that there is that level of expertise and professionalism in the project team. Also, you can benefit from their experience and creative advice to help ensure a successful live event production.
No fixed overhead. Since your agreement with the events management group is contractual in nature, i.e., once the event has been launched and completed your relationship ceases, then you are spared from continuously maintaining fixed costs even when there is no event to manage.
Access to resources. An events management group normally has a network of suppliers on hand to take care of the various logistical and operational aspects of the event. By outsourcing to them you, in effect, also gain access to this network, albeit indirectly, thereby freeing you from having to look for suppliers for each detail of the event.
What an artist management agency does!
