Our planet is at the brink of an environmental disaster. Global temperatures are rising with stark consequences for many of the things that we take for granted.

Fortunately, a technology has emerged that can gather data for conservational projects, support the work of environmental researchers, play a key role in implementing sustainable solutions, help in the fight against the odds created by climate effects, and can even service renewable energy infrastructure.

And it can do all of those things in a way that’s better, easier, faster, cheaper, and safer than before. In case you haven’t guessed it yet, we’re talking about drones. These flying robots are tackling climate change from multiple angles: improving the efficiency of solar farms and wind farms, protecting endangered species from above, and supporting the work of scientists all over the world.
