Use Case – Counting Over 4,000 Pelican Nests in 30 Minutes on Queen Bess Island, Louisiana, USA

Use Case – Counting Over 4,000 Pelican Nests in 30 Minutes on Queen Bess Island, Louisiana, USA

As a supplier of professional drones, we are particularly pleased when we get insights into the work of our customers. Therefore, we would like to take this opportunity to present a project of the UL Ecosystems Lab at the University of Louisiana.

The goal of the project was to automate the process of counting pelican nests on Queen Bess Island, Louisiana, USA.

The Trinity F90+ drone was used to map the island off of coastal Louisiana that is critically important for brown pelicans, and other seabird, nesting. Traditional surveys at the islands are done on foot and with airplanes, but the Nelson Ecosystem Lab at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette wanted to apply new count methods and automate the counting process. The Trinity platform allows the researchers to access these remote islands and count the pelican nests while avoiding disturbing these delicate habitats.
