The head of the World Wildlife Fund described unmanned aerial drones as a vital tool in the fight against the illegal wildlife trade. Carter Roberts said the technology makes it possible to track animals and poachers in remote areas that were previously impossible to monitor. NOAA Administrator Robbie Hood said her agency was monitoring weather systems with drones for long periods of time that would not be possible with manned aircraft.

“Nature’s New Watchdogs” was part of the forum “The Drone Next Door,” held by the Future Tense partnership between the New America Foundation, Arizona State University and Slate magazine. close
