We have been traveling the world with our unmanned aerial vehicles giving demonstrations, trialing their use in new environments, and conducting training workshops for our partners. If you are a conservation researcher or group working in the tropics, and would like to find out how you could be using unmanned aerial vehicles for your conservation research and applications, give us a shout at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Philippine Tarsier Monkey : Known locally as mawmag in Cebuano/Visayan and mamag in Luzon, is a species of tarsier endemic to the Philippines. It is found in the southeastern part of the archipelago, particularly on the islands of Bohol, Samar, Leyte and Mindanao. In 2000, the IUCN, having continuously listed the Philippine tarsier as endangered, further assessed the Philippine tarsier in its red list category and criteria as Data Deficient (DD) which means that there is inadequate information to make a direct or indirect assessment of its risks of extinction based on its distribution and/or population status. Further, it basically means that it is not known how close the species is to extinction or if it is a lower risk.
Currently two main groups are involved in the conservation of the Philippine tarsier: Endangered Species International (ESI) and the Philippine Tarsier conservation (PTC)
I also build multirotors or VTOL Drones Adrucopter, MultiWii, KK2, Tri-Copters, Quad Copters, Hexa copters, FPV planes Also been to Bohol and Cebu and Mindanao. My wife is a native Cebuano / Visayan. I’m willing to do what I can to help. This would be a worthy endeavor to help save the Phillippine tarsier, buy providing tools to survey habitat and find out for sure how close the species is to extinction.
Please let me know of any training events in the UK. Its to apply to primates in a tropical forest in the Amazon. Possible census techniques, maybe infrared sensors or cameras. Thanks.
We do not have planned training events in the UK. But training can be arranged for people that buy a drone for their projects. Let me know what you are specifically interested in.
I saw on your page there were activities with drones in Gunung Leuser National Park. Is this an ongoing project or was this a one-time demonstration? Also, are you aware of other projects taking place with these drones in Malaysia or Indonesia in general? I would very much like to know. Thanks!
Projects that we are involved in are generally on our website. But there are more projects going on by others like http://www.hornbillsurveys.com (Based in Sabah). The work in Gunung Leuser is ongoing.
Your work is fascinating! Im a fundraiser for Greenpeace who is studying for his part 107 and id love to know if there are any ways I can help. I live in Chicago and fly an inspire 1. I understand fixed wing aircraft offer the most range but im curious if there is a place for quads in your work?
Thank you. We certainly use quads as you can see on our website. All our projects at the moment are outside if the US, but we would certainly be interested in projects in the US if there are ones we can help with.
