What are drones used for?

Australian Geographic - - Geo Buzz -

The Cal­i­for­nia-based an­i­mal wel­fare group Mercy for An­i­mals uses drones to doc­u­ment an­i­mal cru­elty on com­mer­cial farms.

In Jan­uary, a drone was used to save two swim­mers in rough seas at Len­nox Head, NSW. In a world-first res­cue, the drone suc­cess­fully dropped an in­flat­able life raft to them.

Drones have many sci­en­tific uses (see right). CSIRO, for ex­am­ple, uses drones to mon­i­tor crops and carry out beach sur­veys.
