These seed-firing drones are planting 40,000 trees every day to fight deforestation

 

What happened?

It's no secret that deforestation is a huge global issue. But what might surprise you is the number of innovative solutions being developed to combat it. One such solution comes from AirSeed Technology, an Australian start-up that has created a fleet of seed-firing drones. These drones can plant over 40,000 seeds per day, and they are helping to fight deforestation around the world.

 

 

Why is this important?

Deforestation is a major problem for biodiversity. It results in the loss of habitat for many animals, and it can also lead to climate change. The drones from AirSeed Technology are helping to combat these problems by planting trees. This helps to restore habitats and fight climate change. Let's be honest. You're not going to make new acquaintances if you talk about biodiversity loss at a party. Suddenly, you're the most popular person in the room when you mention an army of seed-firing drones.

 

Believe it or not, an Australian company is attempting to do just that. AirSeed Technology is using a fleet of highly advanced 'octocopters' to combat deforestation by combining artificial intelligence with specially designed seed pods that may be fired from high in the sky. "Each of our drones can plant over 40,000 seed pods each day and they operate on their own," Andrew Walker, AirSeed Technologies' CEO and co-founder explains. "Compared to conventional techniques, this is 25 times faster while costing 80% less."

 

What's next?

It is clear that drones are going to play a big role in the fight against deforestation. AirSeed Technology is leading the way, but there are sure to be other companies that will develop similar solutions. This is an exciting time for drones, and it will be interesting to see how they are used in the future to help protect our planet.
