WWF works to sustain the natural world for the benefit of people and wildlife, collaborating with partners from local to global levels in nearly 100 countries.
This past June, a tiny white object snaked back and forth through the skies over Montana. It was gathering thousands of images of prairie dog colonies, which are the main habitat of endangered black-footed ferrets. “People have been monitoring ferret habitat on foot here since 2013,” said Kristy Bly, a WWF biologist. “It’s a slow, painstaking process. This year, we put together a team to help us test whether a drone could do that work more quickly.”
