With an increasing global population, conserving our wildlife becomes more complicated and conservationists are increasingly using technology such as UAVs to help them with their efforts.

This Masters will provide you with advanced skills in using drone technology for wildlife conservation research and will give you the specialist skills to maintain and operate drone technology as well as using sensors to obtain and analyse data.
