Biologic Zoologist Brighton Downing recently spoke to The West Australian, in an article featuring newly certified female drone pilots in WA. Brighton told The West about the importance of drones in her field work, particularly for her work with bats in the Pilbara. Drones have been invaluable in enhancing field efficiency and staff safety.


“It’s nice to have a drone when it’s a really hot day in the Pilbara to fly it up, have a quick look and see if it’s worthwhile us hiking up,”

“Alternatively, using the drone we can get a better view of the landscape in order to prioritise work, decide do we want to go down this gorge or that gorge, so drones are an innovative solution to help us with our safety."
