Drones spy on koalas


A DRONE monitoring a trial of koala habitats is expected to provide conservati­onists with a more detailed way to track population numbers.

The 2019-20 summer bushfires decimated koala colonies but deaths were based on modelling, Queensland University of Technology associate professor Grant Hamilton said.

The QUT trial aimed to provide a way to determine koala population­s more accurately, Professor Hamilton said.
