Using drone technology, NTBG has been able to locate previously unknown populations of endangered plants, rediscover species once thought extinct, and even retrieve material for propagation. These photos by GIS and drone program coordinator Ben Nyberg highlight some of the incredible projects undertaken these last few years. For more about our drone program, click here.
