NACHES, Wash. -- Drones could soon be the newest gadgets in forest conservation.
A group of college students in Washington recently built and tested a drone that will survey the health of the forest. The hope is that drones will speed up restoration efforts and save some money.
“You guys ready for the test flight?” asked Ryan Haugo, a forest ecologist with The Nature Conservancy.
“Yeah, I think so,” said Rheno Prajadipta.
