About Us

For over 20 years, Founder Dr Debbie Saunders has worked as an ecologist and studied the movements of small migratory birds. Frustrated by the limitations of radio-tracking manually, Debbie was inspired to develop a practical solution with wide-ranging applicability. Wildlife Drones is now an award-winning start up that is currently working across Australia and abroad to track the movements of some of the world’s most endangered species. At Wildlife Drones, we are reinventing animal tracking research from the ground up. Our innovative drone tracking technology is paving the way for improved research outcomes. We’re all about empowering those in the field to collect more data, more often and keep track of their animals like never before.
