We need to act now to restore critical wildlife habitat at scale. That’s why we’re investing in bold and innovative solutions.
Drone planting technology works by firing seeds in carbon capsules into the soil and maps specific species to their native areas. The capsule protects and fertilises the seeds as they grow, then breaks down as they strengthen into seedlings.
By using drones to plant trees, we can restore our landscapes faster and at scale. One drone can plant up to 40,000 seed pods a day, and these seedlings will grow to become future habitats for our threatened native wildlife species.
Be a part of this exciting habitat restoration project by making a donation today.
To achieve our bold vision, we’ll use a combination of traditional and innovative solutions. Our incredible partners can plant up to 800 seedlings each day in accessible areas. Elsewhere, we can plant up to 40,000 seed pods per day via drone.
Together we’ll take the following steps to restore vital koala habitats:
• Initial project development, area identification and impact modelling.
• Research and photo monitoring of focus areas by 30 June 2021.
• Complete reseeding of 11 hectares of koala habitat using a mix of koala food and habitat seeds by 8 February 2022.
• Provide a final report documenting the impact of the project including controlled burns, drone seeding and community workshops by 8 February 2022.
• Annual reporting on the survival rate of the trees planted, habitat restoration implications and wildlife documentation by 8 February 2024.
A project of this scale requires research, land preparation, and precise drone planning/programming.

When you invest today, we’ll keep you updated on the project’s progress, so you can see exactly how you’re making an impact.
Drone-seeding projects overseas have enabled habitat restoration at a scale never seen before. That's why we're working with local experts to come up with a solution that works best for our unique nature.
You can be part of this critical next step to help our native species recover.
