Project Details


WildDrone is an international training network funded by the EU Marie Skłodowska Curie Actions. The network will operate from 1 January 2023 – 31 December 2026.

We aim to revolutionize wildlife conservation practices by using autonomous drone technology as a unifying platform to monitor wildlife populations, track their movements, and manage human-wildlife conflicts. We believe that the rapid decline of wildlife populations has prompted an urgent need for more effective and feasible nature conservation practices.

The consortium will train 13 doctoral candidates and equip them with a unique combination of multidisciplinary skills for drone-based ecology and wildlife conservation. The candidates will work closely together in a global training network to realize the full potential of drones and companion autonomous systems for nature conservation missions.
