Drones and Conservation


Join WeConservePA for first an update on advances in drone technology and then a roundtable conversation around their utility in conservation work.

Guest speaker Merlin Benner, Founder and CEO of Wildlife Specialists, LLC, is a certified wildlife biologist with a broad range of experience in the use of drones. He has worked for both the Pennsylvania Game Commission and DCNR. He will share up-to-date information on available technology, review training and licensing requirements, and address ecological concerns around drone use. Following the presentation, we will open the floor to discussion, giving participants the chance to share how they or their organizations currently use drone technology and their thoughts on potential future use.

Registrants can propose questions or topics of interest to be prioritized for discussion during the roundtable. Send them to [email protected] ASAP but no later than September 22.
