Animal services for various sectors
Discover the habits and habitats of Australia's fauna
Our services go beyond just observation. We're on a mission to protect and conserve species and habitats. With our non-invasive drone wildlife surveying techniques, we ensure that our observations do no harm, contributing to the preservation of Australia's unique biodiversity.
Tailored Wildlife Insights
We offer native and introduced wildlife surveys that reveal the hidden lives of creatures from Greater Gliders to Feral Cats.
Conservation Beyond Observation
Our commitment is focused on drone conservation measures. We use non-invasive surveying techniques to ensure wildlife protection and welfare.
Get the exact time and location of every animal sighting, along with high quality photos and videos. We provide the knowledge necessary for effective policies and actions.
A Scientific Resource
For researchers and scientists, our surveys are a treasure trove of information, contributing to scientific understanding.
Government agencies and environmental organizations trust us to provide insights that inform their strategies, aligning with Australia's commitment to environmental sustainability.
Survey a range of species
Greater Gliders; Yellow belly gliders; Feathertail gliders; Sugar gliders; Leadbeater possums; Koalas; Feral cats and dogs; Pigs; Deer; Foxes; Rabbits
"Using FMS technology and methodology, Ecologists have accurately identified endangered species and have made a major contribution to the design of these roads and the establishment of species management programs."

Discover answers to common queries about our drone services and solutions. Explore how our expertise can benefit your projects and operations.
Usually not. We find most animals do not show a change in behaviour when the drone is observing them. For surveying skittish animals, we maintain a safe distance from them to minimise disturbance.
We use thermal cameras to initially locate target animals. If they cannot be identified from their thermal signature alone, we use a gimbal mounted LED spotlight and zoom visual camera to record and confirm the species.
Yes. Due to the heat retained by some landscapes, summer presents more challenges than the cooler months due to a lower thermal contrast on our thermal camera. However, it is still possible to find cool nights in summer where thermal surveys are effective.
We use thermal cameras and a laser rangefinder to find the heat signature of target species. We then record the location data and take a photo of the animal for confirmation. This is a different process to our drone & multispectral mapping services. We can also help you set up your own drone animal surveying capability with our drone consulting services.
