Drones for Science: Seabird population monitoring and behavioral assessments Drones or unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) have the potential to transform the way we collect scientific information. For surveys of seabirds, UAS technology may improve upon traditional survey methods by increasing the accuracy of abundance estimates, providing a permanent record of the survey, expanding survey areas to include remote or dangerous sites, and reducing costs. In this newly funded project, Dr. Bishop’s lab along with collaborators at US Fish and Wildlife Service, Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife, and Alaska Department of Fish and Game will validate and refine survey methods for estimation of abundance and productivity of seabirds and measure the behavioral responses of seabirds to drone ov...
