The DLR Wildlife Rescuer: High-tech for animal welfare

In Germany, more than 100,000 fawns are injured or killed by agricultural machinery every year. The young animals duck in danger instead of fleeing and thus become victims. The "Flying Wildlife Rescuer" application system from the German Aerospace Center (DLR) prevents accidents and tracks down the animals hidden in the grass during mowing. By rescuing wild animals, the system also prevents the mowed material from being poisoned by animal carcasses. The DLR Remote Sensing Technology Institute was honored as one of 365 "Selected Landmarks 2012" in the "Land of Ideas" for the innovative idea of the "Flying Wildlife Rescuer".
