Aerial Reconnaissance

Aerial Reconnaissance

Currently, when the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wants to keep track of the waterfowl population in the state or monitor wetlands for invasive plant species, they send a natural resource manager into the field to do a manual count, which is very labor intensive and not very accurate. Other methods to monitor bird populations […]
